GA - URGENT!!! - LAST CHANCE: Survey on HB 1059

View the original message here | Original Announcement



LAST CHANCE to fill out our survey- PLEASE RESPOND if you haven't already. Please make sure to fill out the survey completely, answering all the questions. More directions are below.

Also, if you left the state of Georgia last summer because you couldn't find a place to live, please reply back and let us know that too.
Thanks so much!!!!


We are writing today to ask you once again to give us some information.

Over the last year we have spoken with many of you and taken statements and information about how HB 1059 has impacted your life. We need to understand the full scope of damage caused by this law, so we want to make sure we have the most up-to-date and complete information from each of you.

We need this information right now because the State is trying to argue that not that many people have had to move from their homes or leave jobs their jobs because of HB 1059. We must be able to show the Court what a tremendous impact this law has had on families across Georgia. We need your help to be able to do so. You may fill this out for someone who is on the registry but who is not on the email list.

This info will be shared with the Attorney General’s office, but we are not asking for any information that the state does not already have. Your responses will not be published anywhere. Please complete this survey no later than July 30th and send it to us.

Attached is a questionnaire that we’d like for everyone to fill out and send back to us. Here’s how to do so:
  1. OPEN the attachment to this email titled “HB 1059 Residence Survey
  2. If you have problems opening the attachment, email and I will send you the survey in the text of an email.
  3. TYPE your answers in the spaces provided.
  4. To indicate CHECK MARKS (for yes or no questions) just type an “x” in the line like this: ___X___YES ______NO
  5. When you are finished filling it out, SAVE the document.
  6. Using your email program, open a blank email and attach the saved file.
  7. Send this email to
If you have any questions, contact us and we’ll talk you through it. Thanks so much for helping us make a better case against HB 1059. We will keep you updated about developments as they arise.

All the best,
Sara, Sarah, Lisa and Mica

Now, is the GA AG going to demand the list of names and IP addresses of all offenders who filled out the survey, a la MySpace, and attempt to bring charges up for those who maybe have stipulations preventing internet access (in the case of probation or parole)?
