The time is here for us to come together and protect our children. Our children are a gift from God and they are our future.
Who Was Megan?
In July of 1994, Megan Kanka (age 7) was abducted from her home in
Hamilton Township, New Jersey by Jesse Timmendequas, a twice-convicted sex offender who
lived across the street from the Kanka home. Megan's death led to extreme public outrage
when it was learned that Timmendequas had two previous sexual offense convictions, that he
was on parole at the time of this third crime. This outrage and the continually lobbying
by Megan's parents gradually transformed itself into the implementation of numerous
so-called "Megan's Laws" throughout the United States and in
the signing of a federal bill by President Clinton in 1996 requiring released sexual
offenders to register with local police authorities and public notification of neighbors
when a sexual offender moves into a community. Though the registration portion of these
numerous laws have been upheld as being constitutional by various courts, the public
notification portions continue to be challenged as constituting "extra
punishment" by its opponents.
MissionEach of us must decide whether we are going to be part of the problem (by ignoring the issue) or part of the solution. The lives of our children and their offspring depend on what we, as individuals are prepared to do about the epidemic of molestation.
