A Positive Profile From Shana's Hometown Newspaper

USA FAIR Executive Director Shana Rowan was recently profiled in the Lewisboro Ledger.  Shana grew up in the Town of Lewisboro in Westchester County, New York.

Although a small town publication, it is the kind of reporting that the big media outlets need to do more of.  It was reasoned and fact based with highly knowledgeable sources.

In addition to interviewing Shana, reporter Reece Alvarez interviewed Dr. Jill Levenson, one of the leading academic researchers who studies sexual offenders, Joan Tabachnik, co-chair of the Prevention Committee for the Association for Treatment of Sexual Abusers and an expert in the field of sexual abuse prevention, and Risa Sugarman, Deputy Commissioner of the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services.

USA FAIR was disappointed with Ms. Sugarman’s statement that to her knowledge there are no complaints of negative consequences from the sex offender registry.  This reveals that she has certainly not been engaging in a conversation with the spouses, children, parents and other family members of registrants.  Those of us who live in New York are her constituents too and we have sent her a letter to open a dialog.  You can read the letter HERE.
