ACSOL Conference 2018

Together We Can

Show Up, Stand Up, Speak Up!

June 15-16, Los Angeles











We are pleased to announce ACSOL’s 2nd annual conference

Together We Can! Show up, Stand up, Speak up!

for registrants, family members and supporters on June 15 and 16 in Los Angeles.

Change starts with knowledge, knowledge turns into power, and power impacts our world. Together we can drive change, in our families, in our communities, as well as in our local, state and Federal governments.

Some of the breakout sessions for registrants, family members and supporters will discuss (full schedule below):

  • How to Cope - Support group meeting to discuss the impact of the registry on registrants and their families.
  • Registrant Resources - Help for registrants to find and keep a job.
  • Family Resources - Issues pertaining to finding housing and employment with registrants and their families
  • California Tiered Registry – What happens next - discussing the current law as well as plans to revise it in 2019.
  • Domestic & International Travel – How to stay in compliance when traveling in the U.S. or abroad
  • IML Challenge - Important updates regarding current lawsuit as well as strategy for future challenges.
  • LGBTQ issues - the disproportionate number of registrants that identify as LGBTQ and how being on the registry affects them.
  • Prisoner Legal/Emotional Challenges - Current lawsuits pertaining to inmates (including Prop 57), and how to avoid visiting room sabotage.
“Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It’s the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.”

Andrew Carnegie
