It is the beginning of a new year. It is also the beginning of new hope.
The new hope is based upon ACSOL’s commitment to improve the California Tiered Registry Law this year. We will do this by lobbying the state legislature in Sacramento.
Although this is only the third day of the new year, lobbying efforts are already underway as ACSOL reaches out to other organizations who are likely to support the improvements we request.
ACSOL is also reaching out to YOU because it will be your participation in the lobbying efforts that will make the biggest difference. We need YOU to join Lobby Day in Sacramento on March 21. We need YOU to write letters, send emails and make phone calls.
Lobby Day in Sacramento will be different this year in several ways. First, ACSOL will pay for the parking of everyone who participates. Second, ACSOL will provide scholarships for travel expenses for participants who qualify. Third, ACSOL will provide lunch and dinner for everyone who participates in Lobby Day.
As Frank Lindsay has said for years, we’re all in this together!
Together we can change the Tiered Registry Law. Together we can persuade the legislators to reduce from Tier 3 to Tier 1 those convicted of a felony child pornography offense. Together we can persuade the legislators to reduce from Tier 3 to Tier 2 those convicted of PC 288(c). And together we can persuade the legislators to create an off-ramp for those assigned to Tier 3 as well as make other necessary improvements.
Come to Sacramento on March 21 for Lobby Day if you are able. If you are not able to come to Sacramento, you will have opportunities to make phone calls, send emails and write letters. Details regarding those opportunities will be posted on this website during the next few months.
The important thing to remember is that Together, WE can improve the Tiered Registry Law!
