There Are Nearly 1 Million Americans on a Sex Offense Registry. These Are Their Stories.

Lives on the Registry: From Nurse to Artist, Cynthia C’s Story

Cynthia tells how her faith helped both her and her husband cope with his being on the registry, and to know that people can be redeemed. Although they have faced evictions, death threats, and other restrictions because her husband is on the sex offender registry, their love for each other and hope in a better future have sustained them.

Lives On The Registry is a NARSOL project dedicated to telling the stories of the one million-plus people listed on sexual offense registries across the US. We focus on their stories, their families, and their struggles to reintegrate back into a society that is often indifferent or hostile to them.

NARSOL is the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization exclusively dedicated to defending the constitutional liberties of registered citizens and their families.

NARSOL opposes dehumanizing registries and works to eliminate discrimination, banishment, and vigilantism against persons accused or convicted of sexual offenses through the use of impact litigation, public education, legislative advocacy, and media outreach in order to reintegrate and reconcile affected individuals and restore their constitutional rights.
