With Unity, Comes Change

Raising Awareness for Sex Offender Policies & Issues

We are an organization of citizens, concerned about Sex Offender issues and policies in Florida. Reacting to public hysteria following isolated and heinous events, legislators' enacted broad reaching, and well-meaning legislation intended to protect the public. Unfortunately it fails to do exactly that. The cost to Florida tax payers is not only millions of dollars annually, but includes profound human collateral damage to families and communities and it also fails to protect our children or our communities, nor does it work towards stopping the cycle of abuse.

One Size Fits All
Doesn't Work

Get The Facts

Do You Need Help?

If you feel you are a victim to Floridas broad and agressive sex offender issues and policies please fill our our case consideration form so that we can assist you in your time of need.
