Welcome to End the Registry!
December 2019 marks the 1st Year Anniversary of End the Registry.
The original goals of this site were:
- Develop a community that offers various types of support for registrants, friends, and families
- Provide informational resources related to sex offender registries
- Promote fact-based decision-making while dispelling myths
- Create a culture of “us,” to counter “us” vs. “them” thinking
- Be a resource for all interested parties
- treatment providers
- probation and parole officers
- anyone looking to learn
- Reduce moral panic
Well, I’ve found that there’s no demand for the community aspect on the website, so it’s turned into more of a one-way information platform with some resources and blogs. And that’s okay. The movement to End the Registry is alive and well and there are many people taking part.
About End the Registry
End the Registry was initially created in December 2018 by an individual on the registry in Connecticut (me). As being on the registry carries great stigma, I preferred to keep my name from being associated with the site publicly. After learning of various cases of registrants across the country, many of whom have suffered far worse consequences than I, I decided to do something positive for the community.
