- “FEARLESS” Support Groups
When a person has been accused or convicted of a sexual offense, life for them and their family and close friends can be extremely difficult to say the least. Families often feel alone, confused and terrified. Connecticut for One Standard of Justice (CTOSJ) is launching “FEARLESS” support groups. Many of you already know us and have become supporters. CTOSJ is a volunteer-based civil rights organization advocating for intelligent, rational and compassionate reform of sex offense laws.
Fearless groups will build their own support community. Fearless meetings are aimed at breaking down the isolation by providing a safe place for registrants and their loved ones to get together and learn ways to step out and take charge of their lives and overcome the stigma we all face. Fearless meetings are CLOSED in that they are open only to registered citizens, ex-offenders and family and friends. Fearless support groups will be held to start once monthly at two locations: West Haven and Guilford. Please see below for dates, times and towns. Contact CTOSJ for address details.
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2016 (AND EVERY SECOND TUESDAY OF THE MONTH)
11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
WEST HAVEN, CT 06516
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2016 (AND EVERY THIRD MONDAY OF THE MONTH)
12:00 PM – 2:00 PM
GUILFORD, CT 06437
For those still on parole and probation, you are welcome to attend but please check in with your parole/probation officer first, as registrants will be looked at on an individual basis. CTOSJ has had discussions with Probation and I believe we have their support. Discussions have begun with Parole.
You don’t have to suffer alone. We are here for each other. Please join us for coffee and refreshments, and I suggest arriving 15-20 minutes ahead of the meeting to meet and greet. Of course, please contact me if I can be of further assistance by email or by calling (203) 722-0833. Otherwise see you there!
