Yea, you need emotional support when your illegally subjected to one of the most vile laws in history. A law the u.s. constitution doesn’t apply to, is pure slavery, a mental health designation, and allows every crackpot politician to use and abuse you at their discretion, haha haha haha. No emotional support can help us! Bwahhahahahahaaaaàaaa.

Just remember on this election night, your candidates are thinking about you. They’re wondering just how much more you can take, they’re considering stripping you completely of your citizenship, they’re wondering how much money they can make from your pain, they’re wondering if they can just take away your children from you with another magic law, they’re wondering if they can pass death penalty statutes for you, they’re wondering why other states aren’t like Missouri that ignore supreme court decisions, they’re wondering why you have any rights at all, and they’re wondering how they can take away everyone else’s rights… Read more »

WOW , right @ RENT TIME, not good…
Sounds like a good group meeting at LA’s ACLU Bldg, and free. But timing even with the election results
is not good for travelers that have to pay high rent or mortgage then go to L.A. for support group.

Wish they would think about finances, most of us don’t allow us to be employed or it’s too late and they let us go once they found out about RC’s.

Thank you for this group. National RSOL has a new program called Fearless. I’ll bring materials but if the coordinator of this esg would like to email me, I’d send the information over. This is good for us.

Thank you.

The leader of this meeting in part of the Fearless program.

Thanks for adding this important info Kevin. good to know. We all need more ventilation to relieve our frustrations of our current positions and the laws against us from EVER allowing Rehabilitation, let alone, stop watching our backs and our living quarters and the people we are with from harm and embarrassement.(Wikipedia’s version) and Psychology Today. Then they make it difficult to talk to other RC’s let alone reach out.

I’m too angry, frustrated and confused to attend a pity party.

Then why simply not attend? Instead of putting down an event that some people went to great effort to produce and that may be of great help – perhaps even a life saver – to others?

LOL, then this Party will be good for you.

Hi everyone. The emotional support group will be using the Fearless Groups format, as we are trying to evolve this group into a larger movement that hopefully will produce more groups of this kind. This hopefully will lead to meetings in other locations and at different times. My hope is that there will me more Fearless Groups forming in the area, so more registered citizens can benefit from this important support. For those who are under the impression that this is a going to be a pity party; rest assured it’s not. Although we can express our grievances with the… Read more »

Quick survey: Does anyone think a conference call of this meeting would be useful to you?

It depends: will they do something about the conference call queue problem?

Just some thoughts, in order to draw in and keep people in your group you need to cultivate these in the membership:

A feeling you are contributing to something greater than yourself.
Recognition for any effort you make to further that cause, even though others think your ideas are non workable.
An environment is created were you are not judged by your crime by fellow members who may have done something less objectionable.

If these are not offered in one group, people will find them some other way.

I think that all meetings should be recorded and posted here. A lot of people cannot make these for a multitude of reasons. Dispersing that information from these meetings would make this site more inclusive. Just my 2cents.

The support group is not currently a phone meeting, it is a face-to-face discussion meeting. That kind of meeting is extremely difficult to record.

I think that recording the emotional support meeting is a bad idea. I know I would feel much less comfortable sharing my thoughts, feelings, or experiences in a forum that would be recorded and later put on a website.

If these meetings are to be characterized as “AA” type meetings, then I think the directors should take a page from AA’s books and keep the meetings anonymous.

Victimization, a word synonymous with sex offenses and no other to the same degree. Hmm, in my lifetime I have been sexually abused, beaten, subjected to racism, robbed at knifepoint to my throat, bullied incessantly, taken from my mother, asked for sex when I was 13 by my my foster father, thrown out and abandoned at 16, nearly froze to death in a car while my estranged biological sister slept in her hotel room, paddled in school almost daily, locked in a closet at age 8 by a teacher, and that’s just some of the garbage I’ve encountered. Am I… Read more »

Wow. And i thought i had it bad. Maybe our 2017-2021 Comm. in C. Was also abused in Scotland? You have many life stories to share.
