32. 90 y.o. Rulon Jeffs posing with his 2 new brides. How old do they look?

>> We strive to help victims overcome the physical, sexual, mental, emotional, spiritual and educational abuses that too often occur while living in a polygamous environment.
>> We are not activists against polygamy. Although polygamy is illegal, our purpose is not to eliminate it, but to help its victims. We are advocates for victims of abuse within polygamy, especially displaced youth, "placement marriage" and underage "child bride" marriages.
>> We will help anyone who desires to leave the environment of polygamy including underage brides, women wanting to leave, and young men (the "Lost Boys") who are often cast away like unwanted pets.
>> The HOPE Organization directly provides and/or assists in obtaining such basic necessities as food, clothing, housing, household furnishings, education, employment, transportation, legal assistance, emotional and financial support, mentoring and counseling. We also refer to other social service providers for additional resources.
>> Please read some of the true stories of the brave men, women and children who have escaped the abusive conditions prevalent in the secretive "closed" polygamous communities of southern Utah and the Arizona Strip. Some have been forced out, some have been evicted out and some have found the courage to run away. >>

"How can you say these are consenting adults when they have no education, no exposure to the outside world, and polygamy is the only life these women have ever known?" Carolyn Jessup /
