Have you ever wondered how you can be “obeying the law while you’re breaking the law”?

If so, the upcoming Safety Net conference — where attorney Drew Briney will speak on that topic — may be for you. The conference will be held June 7 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the State Capitol Office Building Auditorium.

I’ve never been to one of these before, but the flyer promises other sessions with titles like “What about the children? Bridging the legal gap,” and “Where do I go from here? Adults who left plural communities and what helped.”

Speakers include attorney Roger Hoole, Holding out Help Director Tonia Tewell and others.

And of course, I will be there, possibly with Tribune photographer Trent Nelson.

Registration is $75 and can be done online or at the door.
