WHAT WE DO

  • Share resource material, referrals, and information with registered citizens and their families, including workshops on requested topics.

  • Lecture at DE universities and colleges, church groups, advocacy groups, and school faculties.   

  • Host viewings of the award winning film "Untouchable" with follow-up discussion and Q&A.

  • Write op-eds and letters to editors for educational purposes and in response to sensationalized articles.

  • Actively monitor Delaware legislation. 

  • Inform DARSOL members of relevant bills to support or oppose.

  • Currently creating a matrix comparing DE’s sexual offense laws and their application to surrounding states to ferret out why there is such a huge disparity between DE and nearby states. (i.e. DE is 3rd in the nation per capita for the number of registered individuals. MD is 50th.) This research will be presented to state legislators prior to seeking sponsorship for a bill to reform DE's sexual offense laws.

  • Collaborate with other advocacy groups working for criminal justice and prison reform.

  • Attend our national organization’s (NARSOL) annual conference to gain knowledge regarding court cases, changes in laws, and other pertinent information impacting all states.

OUR MISSION

Delaware Advocates for the Reform of Sexual Offense Laws is a statewide volunteer organization devoted to promoting a more balanced, effective and rational approach to laws impacting persons required to register for sex related offenses. DARSOL advocates for common sense, research based laws and policies through education, legislation, and support for persons required to register as well as for members of their families.

WE BELIEVE

  • No sexual abuse is ever acceptable.

  • Sex offense laws and policies should be based on sound research and common sense, not fear, panic or paranoia.

  • Current laws and policies that paint all people who have committed a sexual offense with one broad brush don’t contribute to public safety, are counterproductive, wasteful, and cause needless harm as well as significant collateral damage. 

  • Each offense must be judged on its own merits with a punishment that fits the crime without wasting
    taxpayer dollars.

  • The public sex offense registry and residency restrictions do not protect children but instead ostracize and dehumanize entire families while giving the public a false sense of security. 

  • Money spent on purely punitive measures would be better used for prevention, healing, and rehabilitation.
