ACSOL Withdraws Support from Vigil

    The board of directors for the Alliance for Constitutional Sex Offense Laws (ACSOL) has decided to withdraw its support from the vigil planned for Washington, D.C., in March 2023.  The decision is based upon a belief held by a majority of board members that it is no longer safe to conduct the vigil given the highly polarized environment in the nation’s capitol. 

    The ACSOL board of directors did not, however, withdraw its support for the conference to be held in the Washington, D.C., area on March 5 and March 6, 2023.  

    The original purpose of the vigil was to educate the U.S. Supreme Court as well as the public regarding the significant harm caused by the court’s decision issued in 2003, Smith v. Doe, that declared that registration is not punishment and therefore new registration laws could be applied retroactively.  Subsequent to that decision, governments at every level — city, county, state and federal — have passed new laws and applied them retroactively to the detriment of almost 1 million people required to register and their families.

    The 20th anniversary of Smith v. Doe will take place on March 5, 2023.
