Our big case this week is a victory in Idaho for PFRs who were put on the registry because of Idaho’s crimes against nature laws. Men caught having sex would be placed on Idaho’s registry even though the Supreme Court had ruled that anti-sodomy laws were unconstitutional. On behalf of three men, the ACLU took the state to court and won. The courts ruled the state of Idaho had to remove the three men off the registry, as well as any individuals with similar claims. The state was also ordered to pay substantial attorney fees. We feel this is a major win.
More men have died in Alabama prisons, and our hearts go out to their families. We also highlight how Tennessee disenfranchises its citizens who have a felony record, including requiring only those with a record to be current on child support payments before they are eligible to vote.
Kentucky has created a prison to work program, and we discuss the possibility that PFRs will be excluded from the process.

The Registry Matters Podcast’s mission is to cover issues surrounding the Registry. We cover cases that will peel back the veneer of what we need to do to change our lives for the better. We cover news articles that spark conversations about the total insanity of this modern day witch hunt. This podcast will call out bad policy and call out those that are making bad policy.
To change things for the positive, we need to act. We are 6-7-8-900k strong. With that many people, plus their friends and family, over a million people are affected by the registry. We should be able to secure donations to hire lawyers and lobbyists to move the agenda in our favor. We need our people to be represented.
