4 Articles in the Last 12 Hours About Evidence-Based Reform of Sex Offender Registries and Laws and Some Advocates Who Have Stepped Up to Lead the Charge

I check the news multiple times each day. 

Some days there is nothing worth posting in the In the News page and then other days there is a plentitude of articles. 

In the last 12 hours I’ve come across 4 articles that I enjoyed finding and I decided to share them in a post for those of you who don’t check the In the News page. They aren’t from Newsweek or the New Yorker but they are still very good. 

Facts can win out over myth and fear based laws, it just takes the courage of people to ask questions, to demand evidence and data and to not give up when they aren't successful right away or when those in authority attempt to discredit or humiliate them.
You can fight or give up. I choose to fight.
