The FSO Ecomonic Occupy Movement: For Former Sex Offenders and their Families

1-20-2012 National:

A new idea, something relevant to today's times, A Occupy Movement generally defined as "The Occupy movement is an international protest movement which is primarily directed against economic and social inequality."

Today, I cannot think of any other social group of folks more legislatively deprived than former sex offenders and their families. If I stand corrected, please provide links to what you think is a more deprived group than former sex offenders and their families.
With that said, what is this new idea? Well it is not my idea but I fully support it, we have Nebraska's FACTS "Families Affirming Community Safety" to thank for the idea. They have suggested and started -for their area- a Embargo Listing.

The essence of this list is, to list ALL Businesses or Services that somehow deny their services or products to former sex offenders or their families. In addition, if you were denied employment or fired, housing, or denied applying for a school or college, these can be listed as well. This list will allow other former sex offenders and their families to decide whether they think it prudent to do business with those listed. Always better to make informed decisions.

Now, if other Advocates start "Embargo Lists" for their areas, please let us know (Send a link to your Embargo List) so it can be added to the National FSO Economic Occupy Movement: Embargo List. Its that simple, The Community Room now has a home for links to these lists.

Should anyone have any thoughts on this idea, or how to improve on it, please contact us and we will consider them.

For now have a great day and a better tomorrow.
