Young people are the focus of this year's Safety Net conference.

The topic is particularly relevant now, given the recent car crash deaths of five teens and one young adult who grew up in the Warren Jeffs-led FLDS and the discussions over home-school education in polygamous communities (read my story here).

Also on the agenda: A survey of polygamous sect youth, "repairing a child's attachment after trauma" and "embracing equality in plural communities."

The conference is set for 8:30 a.m. on June 15 at the auditorium of the Utah State Capitol building.
