Another year has passed and SOSEN is still in the fight for reform. Membership is growing steadily and our forums are very active. It is no surprise really; with each new law that is passed the dragnet is pulling in more and more offenders and their families. Their lives are ultimately ruined and they seek understanding, information and hope.
2012 saw the uniting of SOSEN, RSOL and WAR to form a more united front in the fight. This was an important step towards becoming a force for change. The splintering of the movement has been our greatest weakness from the start. Now, perhaps we can come to a better understanding of what we are wanting to reform. Or perhaps the courts will beat us to the punch.
