Be sure to watch this remarkable debate on abolishing the sex offender registry hosted by the Reason Foundation. The debate was part of Reason’s Soho Forum, which organizes debates that asks audience members to vote for the most compelling argument. The debate took place February 12, 2018 at the Subculture Theater in Manhattan.
The debaters were Emily Horowitz, chair of the sociology and criminal justice department at St. Francis College, who supports abolishing the registry, and Marci Hamilton, CEO and academic director at Child USA, an interdisciplinary think tank to prevent child abuse and neglect, who argued for the registry.
