We all have stories to tell. The search, the arrest, the sentencing, the struggle to survive, the grief, the happy reunion, the neighbors’ reactions, the kindness, the cruelty.
With whom do you share your stories? How do your listeners respond? Is there a way to educate when we share our stories? Come share your storytelling (truth-telling!) failures and successes. Your experience can help someone else.
FEARLESS is a collaboration of Nebraskans Unafraid and UNO that counteracts dangerous Nebraska law. Research has shown that isolating Registered Citizens, depriving them of jobs and homes, increases the chances that they will reoffend. Current Nebraska law does exactly that. We live in a state where (research has shown that) sex-offender law makes communities more dangerous.
FEARLESS provides an opportunity for Registered Citizens and their loved ones to connect and learn from one another and support one another. Establishing such social networks reduces the likelihood of reoffense. Even though the reoffense rates for sex offenders are extremely low to start with, there is no excuse for grandstanding politicians who make the state more dangerous with their showboating laws.
FEARLESS takes responsibility where our politicians will not. Please join us at 7 p.m. Monday, June 15, at Saint Michael Lutheran Church, 13232 Blondo Street, Omaha. Park in the east lot and come in through the east entrance.
FEARLESS is exclusively for Registered Citizens and their invited guests.
