NARSOL’S conference awards banquet features Paul Shannon

The highlight of the conference each year is the awards banquet. Wherever the conference is held, the banquet food is delicious, the MC is charming and engaging, and the speaker is wonderful. Past speakers include Mary Sue Molnar and Lenore Skenazy.

Paul Shannon needs no introduction to NARSOL supporters. He has been active in advocacy and organizing for over 40 years. In the 1990s, he helped organize a broad coalition of people and organizations to oppose the original sex offender registry and lifetime civil commitment legislation in Massachusetts. In 2007 he was a founder of the original Reform Sex Offender Laws (RSOL). Paul is the former chair, now chair emeritus, of the NARSOL Board of Directors and has been actively involved in organizing the Sex Offender Policy Reform Initiative (SOPRI) in the greater Boston area. He has been teaching social science courses at a number of colleges for 40 years. In 2021, Paul was recognized for his distinguished loyalty and service to NARSOL and to our cause with the first annual NARSOL Lifetime Achievement Award, which now bears his name.
