Civil Liberties Forum to Discuss Polygamy

Dan Mach, the national American Civil Liberties Union’s (ACLU) director of Freedom of Religion, will present “Polygamy, Peyote and the Pledge of Allegiance” in Weber State University’s Shepherd Union Wildcat Theater April 4 at 10:30 a.m. for the second annual Civil Liberties Forum.

The objective of the forum is to create a space on campus where students can address the more controversial civil liberties issues. This year the ACLU will use the controversial practice of polygamy as the framework for all that religious freedom encompasses. The event, which is free and open to the public, is co-sponsored by WSU’s Center for Diversity & Unity, WSU Convocations, the American Democracy Project and the Utah ACLU.
