THANK YOU for sharing your story!

The purpose of this project is to undermine the stereotype of “sex offender” by having registered citizens from all walks of life tell their story about what they do in their lives, the contributions they make to society and, if appropriate, their family life. We hope that your story will also provide encouragement to other registrants, providing hope for a positive life in spite of the hardships faced. You may briefly mention your conviction, but the story should focus on your life NOW.

This is part one of our project. At some point in the future we hope to expand “Humans of the Registry” into a video project.
