Major ACSOL Accomplishments and Plans

ACSOL has succeeded in making the lives of registrants better in very important ways!

Due to the efforts of ACSOL, California is the only state where registrants who are not on parole, probation or supervised release have no limits on where they can live, the places they can visit and how they celebrate Halloween. ACSOL accomplished this achievements during its first decade by filing more than 100 lawsuits in both state and federal courts. ACSOL was able to accomplish this and more due to the support of registrants, family members and supporters. We thank you for that support and look forward to working together during the next 10 years and beyond in order to accomplish new goals.
