NARSOL announces exciting new project

image_pdfimage_print

Lives on the Registry is a new project spearheaded by NARSOL; this time, we hear directly from the people whose lives are affected by the registry in short documentary-style films.

It is well documented that the registry has included people from all walks of life; most of these people have suffered in silence for one simple fact – very few people or organizations have been interested in letting them share their stories in their own words.

One of the goals of NARSOL is to humanize people on the registry — to portray them as ordinary people, not monsters.  If you have a human-interest story to tell, be it exciting or mundane, NARSOL provides two methods for you to do so without concern that you will be portrayed in an adverse light.

  1. Humans on the Registry, using the written word, and
  2. Lives on the Registry, using live documentary-style or animated video.

Humans on the Registry already has 15 stories gathered over 3 years, and you may read these stories and tell your own at humans.narsol.org. But as powerful as written pieces and static pictures can be, there is no substitute for seeing that person living life and telling his or her own story in his or her own voice.

The natural progression in this effort to tell registrants’ stories was brought on by the hard work of the Lives on the Registry team in close collaboration with NARSOL. Our first video is launching today and can be found at lives.narsol.org. You will see several videos each month, some live stories and others in animated form, both formats highlighting some of the more unbelievable aspects of overreaching sexual offense laws.

Check out our introductory video and first story today at lives.narsol.org! Then subscribe to the channel so that you can be the first to know when our next video gets posted.

If you have a story you would like to share, go to lives.narsol.org, and choose the “Tell my story” option. For more information, choose “Contact us.”
