Fearless Groups aim to provide a supportive community for persons who are required to register, along
with their family members and friends who face the same challenges, which are immense. Fearless
groups may initially be launched or promoted by an advocacy group. Ideally, however they will run
independently and have no direct ties to any particular advocacy organization. Instead, group members
are encouraged to launch or get involved in such organizations as a part of becoming “fearless.”
Why join with Fearless?

Fearless Groups allow you to safely discuss the realities you are struggling with and not be judged.
Fearless was developed by members of NARSOL (the National Association for Rational Sexual Offense
Laws). NARSOL “envisions a society free from public shaming, dehumanizing registries, discrimination,
and unconstitutional laws.” NARSOL’s Fearless Project can be found at
Fearless Group members share a common goal: learning to deal with the weight of coping with the
registry’s impossible and questionable requirements. The daily stress is made a little bit easier with the
help of others who have struggled with the experience. Through group support, you and your family can
learn what is working for others, where to find work, how to deal with housing, dealing with the
emotional weight of the loss that comes with being labeled, and other unique struggles that only those
on the registry, or those who love them can understand.
