We look forward to seeing you at ACSOL’s conference this Friday!

I really enjoy listening to the speakers that have come and shared about legal challenges across the country. I always walk away amazed of all the info I’ve learned; I’m never disappointed.

Our theme is “Together, One Voice: Show up, Stand up, Speak up!”!

Our speakers will give you hope, plus a lot of useful information.

You will feel hope as you talk with other registrants and supporters.

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.

    I’ve been paid the equivalent of less than $1/hour for the last few years in a failed business venture and will never see income from it. I have finally given up on it and if I had the ability, I would be taking him to court since I just learned he bought another new car instead of paying me my fair share. It is because of this and other hardships that I will not be attending, once again. Life really sucks being on the registry. I’m sorry.

    Janice, I should have informed you weeks before. Quite regretfully, due to at least two of my AB109 probation stipulations, I’m not allowed to attend the conference: as I have probation’s eyes on me through a GPS ankle-monitor, it’s right next to a middle-school, which I have to stay at least 100 yards away from, and it’s also “where other sex offenders congregate”. (I never completely understood the latter stipulation.) Finally, my PO is unflattered by any of my potential visits onto university campuses, since it’s “where kids can and do congregate”, not to mention the allegedly “abundant availability of internet access” there; as you may or may not remember, my conviction is CP. I should be completed with probation mid-November of this year, but until then, I have little option.

    That being said, I could really benefit from the conference’s discussions, notably on cp issues, housing and employment, and lgbt issues. Is the conference going to be video recorded?

    Unless something could be done wihtin 2 days regarding my being unpermitted to attend, I guess I’ll see everyone at dinner Friday; which I am allowed to attend.

      @AC:
      “I guess I’ll see everyone at dinner Friday; which I am allowed to attend.”

      How interesting your PO thinks it’s fine for you to congregate with other RCs at a dinner, but not at an event where you might learn something to challenge the regime.

      • AC

        It’s not quite that. (Though, to my surprise as well as my irritation, some PO’s do, in fact, think like this!)

        It’s simply easier for me to tell my PO that I didn’t know other sex offenders were at the restaurant I chose to go to for Friday; since I’m sure I pass by other SO’s my days out all the time. But, at a conference for the SO Registry, it would be a laugh to say I didn’t know other SO attended. My PO could find out what that conference is about.

        The stipulation states, “knowingly associate with other sex offenders.”

        Hope that clarifies.

        • Mike G

          @AC

          In that case, I hope your PO doesn’t monitor this web page or the jig is up!

        • AC

          Nah, don’t worry, AJ. There’s more than a 90% chance that my PO isn’t.

    • Janice Bellucci

      The four main speakers as well as many of the panel presentations will be videographed and a link to the videos will be added to this website about a week after the conference. We are unable to record every panel and speaker because some of the people speaking are unwilling to be videographed. Viewing of the videos will be available to the public at no cost. Our goal is to provide as much information as possible to as many people as possible.
