SOCIETY | SAFETY | SEX OFFENDERS
Does the sex offender registry make our communities safer, or is misinformation putting us at greater risk?
In her independent and self-produced documentary REGISTERED, college student Megan Clark takes us along on her three-year journey deep into the heart of this conversation. In doing so, this 30-minute film kick starts a needed dialogue about an aspect of public safety that has far-reaching moral and social justice implications. Through interviews with clinicians, lawyers, offenders, and community service providers who struggle to make sense out of legal policy and real life, REGISTERED humanizes those who have been most impacted by the Oregon sex offender registry.
In the end, we are compelled to ask the hard question, "Does the sex offender registry actually make our communities safer?”
