Last night’s membership call covered topics ranging from the myths about the registry to the sex offense law reform hurdles that we all face. The guest speaker on the call was Dr. Emily Horowitz, Sociologist & Department Chairperson at St. Francis College in NY. She discussed how the registry is nothing but a “naming and shaming” scheme, and how her research of over 300 peer-review studies has shown that registries are ineffective at preventing crime and, instead, create barriers to offender reintegration.
