MISSION OF THE MEDIA COMMITTEE

The mission of our Media Committee is to educate the media and public about the facts surrounding sex offense issues.  The Media Committee is working to reform the laws governing people required to register as sex offenders in Florida so that legislation is in accordance with empirical evidence and practices that truly protect our children and the public.

MEDIA COMMITTEE DUTIES

Members on the Media Committee strive to reach this goal by working on one or more of the following:

  • Monitor media outlets.
  • Comment on news articles either by commending the journalist on their article, correcting misinformation stated in the article through the use of research-based facts, or building on the theme of the article to include comments about the punitiveness of the registry.
  • Write “Letters to the Editor”.
  • Write Op-Eds.
  • Write News Releases.
  • Post appropriate articles at the FAC website.
  • Establish relationships with journalists.
