Update: Hear about our current initiatives and plans moving forward. We also expect to host at least one state representative, enhancing our advocacy impact. 

Our efforts extend across Connecticut, with previous meetings held in Middletown, New Britain, and Waterbury. Now, we are focusing on strengthening our presence in Fairfield County.

  • Fearless Meeting

    Fearless Meeting

    July 17, 2024

    What is Fearless?

    Fearless groups are an emotional support community, based on the 12-step model, for people on the Sexual Offense Registry and their friends and family.

    Fearless meetings are aimed at breaking down the isolation by providing a safe place for people on the Registry and their loved ones to get together and learn ways to improve and take charge of their lives and overcome the stigma we all face.

    You don’t have to suffer alone.

    “Compassion is the greatest form of love humans have to offer.”

    - Rachel Joy Scott

    Let’s all get on the compassion train.


    More information on our Fearless meetings can be found on our website:


    Connecticut’s Fearless support group meets on a monthly basis (every 3rd Wednesday at 8PM EDT). These meetings are held on Zoom and registration is required in order to attend. The registration link will be sent by email. Please use the form on the Fearless page to sign up to receive the registration email.

    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email from Zoom with a personalized link to join the meeting. Please keep this link as you will need it to join the meeting.

    Fearless is open to anyone affected by the Registry (registrants, family, and friends). All attendees must be over 18. This is to ensure a safe environment free from law enforcement or treatment professionals.

    All attendees must agree to and abide by our group’s courtesies and traditions so that everyone feels respected, heard, and welcomed. We aim to create a safe space to share and find support.

    Meetings will run up to 1 1/2 hours and we will review the general rules once the meeting begins.
