The first day of the March 2023 conference will begin on Sunday, March 5, at 8 a.m. Invited speakers include Rep.

“The meetings on Capitol Hill will be team meetings that will include at least one registrant, at least one family member and at least one person who supports registrants and/or their families,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci.  “Each team will be led by a person who has knowledge of Capitol Hill.”

After their meetings on Capitol Hill, buses will return attendees to the hotel.  

Following the two-day conference, a vigil will be held on Tuesday, March 7, at the U.S. Supreme Court building in order to educate the Court regarding the significant harm that has flowed from their 2003 decision, Smith v. Doe.  In that decision, the Court determined that registration is not punishment and therefore new laws could be passed and applied retroactively that harm the lives of registrants and their families.  Buses will take conference attendees to and from the U.S. Supreme Court building.
