I am very excited to watch this important conference!

Janice and ACSOL,

Right to reputation was actually built into the CA Constitution back in 1931, long before right to privacy, in Melvin v Reid, 1931.

Melvin v. Reid, 112 Cal.App. 285, 291-92 (Cal. Ct. App. 1931) (“The right to pursue and obtain happiness is guaranteed to all by the fundamental law of our state. This right by its very nature includes the right to live free from the unwarranted attack of others upon one’s liberty, property, and reputation. Any person living a life of rectitude has that right to happiness which includes a freedom from unnecessary attacks on his character, social standing or reputation. 

Hope this helps with mimicking the PA “right to reputation” angle.

LOOK FORWARD TO IT! Hoping others who may NOT be able to afford check in with ACSOL as some fees has been paid probably by others, don’t forget, some of us out there are homeless and jobless, some in RV’s busses and their cars, really struggling worse than others.
That’s it!
Donate and watch and learn, especially for those who have not been able to participate on the weekends and prior conf’s.
Good To Know!
Go ACSOL BOARD, JANICE AND CHANCE and so many others besides guest speakers putting all this on


Hoping this is the right forum to submit a comment. First, has there ever been an effort to introduce legislation to allow an person with a 288(a) conviction to allow for expungement or certificate of rehabilitation and pardon? My conviction occurred almost 30 years ago with no offenses prior or after and been a responsible, accomplished and active in charities and community organizations. I want to pursue this matter and appreciate feedback on this matter. Thank you

Thank you for the 10-1-22 meeting. I appreciate ACSOL commitment to fight for our rights. Please keep up the fight and support on your website. Looking forward to next meeting.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
