Today we need to notify ANY former California sex offender who HAS ALREADY BEEN REMOVED from the public registry, that effective 1-1-2012 those folks will be automatically RESTORED to the public registry unless they file for EXCLUSION following a new procedure that has been added to California registry law.

DEADLINE For States to Implement the
Adam Walsh Act July 27, 2011. Long past and still only 15 of 50 have substantially complied!!

Now its November and no change in Compliance. In July they said "it would take up to 3 months to go through what has been submitted." Still nothing!

Advocate Alert: Attorney General Holder Convenes Federal Reentry Council This article covers all sorts of topics related to the daily lives of registrants, and anyone else with a criminal record. All Advocates MUST become aware of Reentry Myth Buster Fact Sheets which are explained in this article.

We the People:
Announcing White House Petitions & How They Work

Advocate Shouts
For the past two years, the Federal Government has been discussing caseloads and funding of Public Defender systems across the country. Little has been done. We, along with NLADA, have written a petition requesting that the indigent defense crisis in the country be addressed. We need 25,000 signatures by 11/4/11. We want to send a message nationally that our Public Defender clients cannot continue to be the outcasts.

The website set up by the Obama administration is called We The People-Petitions (Gideon Petition Specifically ) (Direct link). You have to create a log-in account, but we really need you to sign it and, yes, SEND IT OUT ON YOUR SOCIAL NETWORKS.

If this petition gets 25,000 signatures by November 03, 2011, the White House will review it and respond! We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the Obama Administration to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets enough support, the Obama Administration will issue an official response.

So please click on the link above and sign the Petition.

CA RSOL had great success with our October meeting in Los Angeles. The second meeting of CA RSOL will be in San Francisco on Saturday, November 12, at Unity Church, 2222 Bush Street. The meeting will begin at 10 a.m. Our meetings will continue to focus upon efforts in support of registered persons throughout the state.

The meeting is free and is open to registered persons as well as family members and friends. Additional information regarding the meeting and CA RSOL can be found online at You can reach me by e-mail at We would like to hear from you, whether or not you will be able to attend the November meeting.

Thank you, Janice
