Our Mission Statement
The Alliance for Constitutional Sex Offense Laws (ACSOL) is dedicated to protecting the Constitution by restoring the civil rights of people listed on the public registries and their families. In order to achieve that objective, ACSOL will educate and litigate as well as support or oppose legislation.
- No sexual abuse is ever acceptable.
- Sex offense laws and policies should be based on sound research and common sense, not fear, panic or paranoia.
- Current laws and policies that paint all people convicted of a sex offense with one broad brush are counter-productive, wasteful, and cause needless harm.
- Each offense must be judged on its own merits with a punishment that fits the crime and does not waste taxpayer dollars.
- The public sex offense registry and residency restriction laws do not protect children but instead ostracize and dehumanize individuals and their families.
- Money spent on purely punitive measures would be better used for prevention, healing, and rehabilitation.
- We do not now nor have we ever had a relationship with the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA)
