I will be there for sure.

I’ve only recently learned of CARSOL’s existence, so I’m looking forward to attending the L. A. Meeting and getting lots of helpful information.
I’m very glad this organization exists.
See you January 10!

How did you learn of CA RSOL? We are glad that you heard of us and want to expand the group so that we can continue to educate.

I live near the Oregon border. Is there any chance for a meeting in the north state, like redding?

If you can find us a place to meet, we will be there.

Thank you, Janice, for your response. I will be moving to Medford,Oregon in the next couple months, however, I will see what is available in Redding. Redding does have a very large RC base. I do not know how to get the word to them about CA RSOL.

How many people? Are there any other criteria?

Greetings – I have spent a considerable amount of time reading through the posts on this website, and I can personally related to many frustrations amongst the users of this site. Though I am now an expired sex offender, I fully support and see the necessity for substantial change in sex offender polices. In a nutshell, as I can sum everything up that I have read so far, sex offender policy is a very misleading propaganda machine that has resulted in human rights abuses. It is in my own opinion that it has come to a justifiable point that there… Read more »

“Be the change you wish to see in this world.” In that regards reforming oneself is key to reforming the system. I am interested in what sort of social environments can be create to address violence before it happens. We’ve created a system that terrorizes groups of citizens, as a response to actual or perceived criminal activity. It’s not crime prevention. It’s social control. 200 years ago the state terrorized it’s citizenry with much more punitive laws than we have today. Death for stealing, physical branding, torture. If we look back then, life was much more violent than it is… Read more »

Also, I admire you for taking a position that you don’t have to for your own self interest. I thank you. I had protested years ago on another issue, under fear that I be fired from my job. That fear I have now, and the consequences are greater than then. I guess it takes telling yourself, this is the last straw, I got to do something.

Exactly! I plan on being at this meeting.

Can’t be there, but can a discussion be started about laws as relates to employment, such as expungement and such. Being off the registry means little if you can’t get hired.

I just came across this site (and group) and will do everything in my power to attend. I am so excited to have found this group and will be as actively involved as I possibly can be.

Looking forward to meeting everyone in January!

And we look forward to meeting YOU! Attending “monthly” meetings is a great way to learn the latest information on the important issues as well as to share the challenges you are facing.

I am recently on Parole in Ventura County do you think I would have any trouble asking my PO for permission to go to L.A. to participate in the meetings ?

I did Ventura County parole, got off 3 years ago, live in LA now. I had a parole officer who understood what “50 mile radius meant” and I lived in Simi, so I went to meetings, Dodger games, downtown LA, ANYWHERE in the 50 miles, but some of the “less intelligent” ones told others that they could NOT leave the county, which is INCORRECT! So ask your PO, but remember, Janice is YOUR LAWYER, so if there is an issue, you are meeting with YOUR LAWYER at her office, she maintains one at the ACLU building. This should allow you… Read more »

I went to the last meeting in Los Angeles. I was a bit apprehensive at first because I didn’t know what to expect. I thought there would be people with signs out front or something crazy like that. But once inside I felt totally safe and by the end of it I felt like I was surrounded by friends. I encourage everyone who is free and within driving distance to attend.
I look forward to going this time around.

I look forward to being there.

I am also anxious to attend one of these meetings, but like most of us Registered Citizens, travelling more than an hour from home is too expensive and my County has very little in the way of public transportation as we have no train or Greyhound services. I look forward to the day I have the opportunity to attend and be with others in this awful situation. I’m in Lake County which is small, poor and isolated.

Very good meeting today. Helpful information. Nice to meet Janice, Chance, Frank et al.
I look forward to the day when residency restrictions are recognized as “banishment” and
SORNA is challenged at the U. S. Supreme Court as the “punishment” it is.

Glad you went!!

when is the next meeting, i missed the January meeting

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
