    LOOKING FOR A SPEAKER?

    Why not have one of our unnoticed victims, the family members and/or loved ones of RFSOs, to speak at your organization's next get-together? We also love to speak at faith based meetings. Our founder does most of our speaking engagements and our main goal is to educate the audience on the real facts about sex offenders and issues facing New Jersey.

About

Without help, nothing will change!  If you don’t help who will?
We need people to be on the look out for recent news stories or articles including, but not limited to, the AWA/SORNA, court rulings, residency restrictions, and lawsuits both in New Jersey and other states. Many of these news stories or articles have a place for posting online comments. Posting comments is a good way to educate the public. This can be done in the comfort of your own home any time of day or night.

We need people to search the web for recent studies including, but not limited to, debunking the myths of RSOs, the AWA/SORNA in other states, and the ineffectiveness of the current trend in laws. This also can be done in the  comfort of your own home any time of day or night.  This is a huge and on-going educational project.

We need people who have spare time during the day to make phone calls to other states for certain projects we are working on.

We need everyone to meet in person with their Representative and Senator in order to educate them on the facts. Tell them your personal story of how these laws impact you and your family. Bring them the fact sheets (available on the website). Cite current evidence-based research about how the majority of these laws do nothing to increase public safety. Explain that many RSOs committed non-violent offenses, many were teenagers or young adults at the time of their crime, many were first-time offenders, yet ALL have to follow the same harsh restrictions as the worst of the worst FOR LIFE.  If you don’t know who your own Senator or Representative is, you can look up that information on our NJ FAIR ~ Legislative Information site.  [It is recommended that you know who you are voting for BEFORE you vote.  Know their voteing record and their record on voting percentage for civil liberaty legislation.   (see more information about this at NJ FAIR ~ Legislative Info )

We need people who are willing to spend their own money on postage for mailing letters, gas for traveling to and from Trenton, and hotel rooms when you go to conferences or seminiars, if need be. We would love to reimburse everyone for these expenses, but we get very few donations. Most of the expenses came out of a few pockets.

There is a list of our committees in the above tab.   By the time the end of the year rolls around, those who have worked on educating the leaders of our communities, state and federal governments, have been recuiting, fundraising, or all of the above will be burnt out, exhausted, frustrated, and angry. You will have spent a lot of money, time, and energy on something that seems to have been a total waste. You will feel like no one in Trenton, your district, community or even Washington, DC listened to your plight.  You will learn about a system designed to make it virtually impossible to educate people about the FACTS regarding sex offenders.   You will want to move to another state where the laws aren’t so restrictive (yet, anyway).  You will swear you won’t waste another moment on this cause and learn to accept what happens. You will feel that you have utterly failed, letting down not only yourself and your loved one (the RSO), but every other RSO in the state you were fighting for.  You will think that you have been beating your head against a brick wall trying to educate leaders in the community, state and federal government, law enforcement, institutions, and general public.

And you’d be right. For a while. However, after you give it time for the dust to settle and to lick your wounds, you will realize that all the hard work, time, money, and effort did make a difference. A small difference, but a difference.

Without dedicated people to take on the challenges listed, our lawmakers, law enforcement, institutions and general public will continue to think the same about sex offenders.  Few crimes bring out more fear and loathing from the general public than sex offenses.  Convicted sex offenders are the most hated members of society.  Public perception of those labeled as “sex offenders” continues to prompt lawmakers to pass harsher laws against this perceived evil group of people.  They do so because it is easy, because no one has had the guts to stand up against them. That has now changed.
