In late February, 2021, the NARSOL board members decided to appeal to key members of the new administration regarding sexual offense issues as they im

Here’s to hoping for a favorable response from someone at least willing to listen………I won’t hold my breath.

I love the idea of this letter. My only complaint is that I think ” legislation designed to reduce sexual offenses and punish offenders has…” is far to gracious. I think it’s a stretch even to say “legislation meant to reduce…” since no doubt by recent rounds of expansion it was well known that these laws are not effective.
No, they are designed to unconstitutionally punish a class of people in order to secure votes and money.

I’m with you . I don’t know what to say anymore. I Had a SIS back in 1989 , I was free . Then you know what happened, then in 2006 I didn’t have to sign anymore because the Supreme Court said I didn’t have to , . Free again , then in 2009 they said I had to sign again. Lost my mind , and wife and kids . And ever time I look around, they are trying to put me in jail for some reason or another. Can’t take much more , and nobody cares if anyone of us die tomorrow. Q

Very well written. Let us hope it does not fall onto death ears.
Amazing, Disney just posted a statement reading
“It’s important for a company with as much influence and power as Disney has to address its problematic and exclusive behaviors, fix them, and move forward with representation values at the forefront of its efforts. As these inclusion-minded changes begin to take root, hopefully they will foster a legacy that’s rich in respect, acceptance, and love for others. “We will never stop working to make sure Disney is a welcoming place for all,” D’Amaro said.”
But we all know Any past or present sex offender on the registry is 100% banned from Disney and will be trespassed for life.

Thank you so much for writing this letter for all that live on the registry. I pray to God that someone will hear and listen to someone who’s really trying to help. It’s a crying shame that every other crime committed is so easily forgotten except a sex offender. They have to live in shame as long as they are on the registry and not only them but also their families.

In my opinion, this letter is a step in the right direction, and many more such letters should be sent to many officials at the federal and state level. When we ask nicely (but insistently – by repeating many times) we are really demanding. Our approach, in my opinion, must be a polite demand.
The tone of this letter is exactly right, but it must be repeatedly sent to many persons of power.
April 16, 2021 at 11:39 am #82867
Very good letter. However, I hold no hope for success with legislators. There is too much money involved that goes right into their coffers. The only way we will ever win will be in court.

Was the VP in the group who received letters? Since her former position as CA AG, it would be interesting to see her reaction (but why do I imagine her laughing manically at it when done reading the letter given how she was not a well received AG with her actions to her own citizens)?
April 16, 2021 at 1:39 pm #82875
I would also write: the head of the Department of Justice, the head of the SORNA Office, and the speakers of both houses of Congress.

Their answer to “criminal justice reform” as pertaining to sex offenses is to sidestep the issue altogether. They created an untouchable system, only when they can safely tiptoe around (ie using the blm or lgbtq narrative) will they even attempt to handle this steaming bag of legislative bile.
Corrupt law makers, law enforcement, and entrenched politicians seeking easy votes is how things got this way. You’re looking at two of them in office right now. They will impose 20 new hardships for every 1 concession. The sooner people realize this the better.

Thank you for this and all you do.

Thank You NARSOL,
For taking action to the statements that President Biden has given. Hope is what we all need, and change is what we all hope to see. I think it took AIDS to make gays human to us all. I say this with love to my best friends brother, as well as my step brother and to several of my friends that I never turned my back on. I will also never turn my back on the many People who are now labeled as Sex Offenders. I say this on behave of my grandson, and my granddaughter’s boyfriend, and the men that I have meant in the required meetings as others that I have meant over the years. I stand by you all!
Thank you Brenda Jones

Bravo NARSOL.. such a beautiful, poignant letter. I choose today to see the glass half full. This communication to the Biden administration gives me hope. Will it accomplish what we need it to do? Maybe. We get there through our labor and persistence, resilient we stand.
In solidarity and a great big virtual hug to the NARSOL board.

One can hope. But reality is that all politicians use sex offenders as a scapegoat. They make claims as they pass laws that this is meant to protect our children. When in reality is destroys more lives that it saves. Each day brings to light that more and more politicians and high ranking officials are accused of heinous acts. Hope dwindles while the government plays games.
April 17, 2021 at 7:04 am #82893
I think she also should have added that; there are a great many of Us that have had our Right To Vote returned to Us-in my case My PO said so. Thus; there’s a Huge Block of Us that can assist in helping Congress and the Senate, especially in the Upcoming Mid-Term Election Cycle, remain Blue Controlled by a wider margin than what both have now. Since they’re all about THE MONEY, why not play THEIR Game against them by financially backing those who WILL actively seek to include RSO Reform Legislation in the overall package? Maybe even that is too much to hope or even consider asking for…but then again, why not?
April 17, 2021 at 7:05 am #82894
Nice thought, I’ll definitely come back to the U.S. of Amensia if they abolished this insane registry to visit my son and daughter that I have not seen since they put a label on me as a registered S.O.and unwanted member of the land of the free and brave (not).

Its time for all sex offenders to do more than just ask for justice. No one has listened yet. The USA needs people to look down on and persecute. Makes it feel better about the criminal acts it has committed in everyday life on citizens. The scope has moved from Blacks to sex offenders now. The Bill of Rights has always been the Bill of Temporary Privilege’s. Just ask any Black American, Indian and all others this country decided shouldn’t have rights. Now we are the ones this country has decided has No Rights. Stop being afraid. Arm your self for defense, stand up, Laugh at the miss informed cops that laugh at you and if any vigilantes try to hurt you make sure they don’t hurt you! Everyone thinks all sex offenders are weak and defense less. Protect you self and family. Above all don’t ask, BARK!!! And Always Tread On Those Who Tread On You!! You will be surprised how many Vigilantes will run because they thought you are scared and weak. Has worked WELL for me.

Thank you! For everyone reading this: you want more action? Join the effort by writing similar letters to your state leaders and lawmakers – if there is a light at the end of this tunnel it begins by raising our collective voices to every level of government -consistently, clearly, and with dignity And then standing by armed with the clearest, most honest and convincing statistics and the testimony of the most persuasive among us.

Thank you for your work!

Thank you for a well-communicated message. Hopefully, this letter will make a big impact and start the conversation and not a monologue as has always been.
April 17, 2021 at 5:12 pm #82914
Sex Offenders are easy targets for the media and the politicians, both of whom feed the public misinformation about SOs. Regardless of the crime, the public gets convinced that all SOs are child rapists and should be put away for life. Reforming or abolishing the registry is a political third rail and no elected official will touch it. I truly appreciate NARSOL and what they are trying to do, but unfortunately the courts are probably our only hope and that is a slim one.
April 17, 2021 at 5:13 pm #82916
Thank you Brenda and all the NARSOL members. I also believe that we the registered offenders and our families and friends as well need to write letters and visit our local representatives and have these conversations with them. Most if not all the information they have is for these types of laws, WE ALL need to stand up and be recognized and deal with the issues. Being they effect us all, family and friends as well as all our communities that we live in. WE can not just stand around and let others fight our battles, we must stand with those who help and stand in numbers. If this fight is one worth winning or losing it all then we must stand as one United group. Their is strength in numbers.

It is an honest effort to ask. However it has been my experience that complaints about national unionized workers to a party that clearly supports the same utopian paradise fantasy is fruitless. The harder they squeeze to more abhorrent America gets.Obviously no database will fix it. That will require humans dealing with humans opposed more prophylactic use of machine database.
April 20, 2021 at 5:21 pm #82991
yes writing the letter will help if it finds the people who are not afraid to be adjective in changing the way our laws alow for the systematic injustice born by so many.
