On Friday The Brian Banks Story will open at theaters across the nation.
Brian was pro-football bound and then it happened. A life-changing event. Brian became a registered citizen.
What can you do about that? Unfortunately, nothing but think about this. We are advocates right? What does the movie industry pay attention to and then emulate? So, if we just happen to enjoy a night at the movies with friends and family. If we share this email with lots of other registrant families, sports enthusiasts and social justice folks across the nation that is our way of silently influencing an industry that can write and produce more movies shining a light on the life of a registrant and families.
Brian and others have already begun promoting the film. When we see an interview or teaser that is our cue to go to that media’s Facebook page or website and tell our stories in the comments area in a civil and professional manner.
All of us can advocate for our futures in small and quiet ways. Spread the word.

In this trying time we want to reiterate a few things for our registrants and families. We don't want there to be any confusion or penalties concerning registry requirements during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Make sure you know current requirements. You can go to your Sheriff's Office website to see if there is new information there. If so, we suggest you do a screen print and save it. Call your registry office to get clarification on any questions you might have. Document the date, time, who you spoke with and their instructions regarding any address change, vehicle, employment, travel dates if required, etc.
Keep in mind if you are required to update your drivers license annually through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) you should contact them for their status. Some are limiting the number of people allowed inside and you have to wait to receive a call from them and then come back inside. Document any instructions.Be safe, be smart, stay healthy and know we will get through this.
All information is confidential and we do not distribute any data whatsoever.
