Jessica Lunsford

Protecting Our Children From Sexual Predators

Many states have sexual predator laws that are simply not protecting our children. The National Federation of Republican Women would like your help in enacting laws that will keep our children safe. The best way to achieve this is through an initiative named for Jessica Marie Lunsford, who was abducted and sexually assaulted before being brutally murdered.

Jessica’s Law refers to the Jessica Lunsford Act, passed in Florida, which includes mandatory minimum sentencing, lifetime supervision and electronic monitoring, increased registration and reporting requirements, and other measures.

Several states already have passed Jessica’s Law or equivalent legislation, but many states still have a lot of work to do.

With the support of the Jessica Marie Lunsford Foundation, the NFRW has launched a comprehensive issue advocacy program which will be implemented at the state level by the NFRW’s state federations. The program gives state federations the tools to advocate for the passage of Jessica’s Law or its equivalent in every state, and also calls for monitoring the enforcement of the legislation once it is passed.
