This is Ashlen (If you didn’t already know) and you’re going to be hearing her voice throughout the season. Ashlen grew up in the conservative Church of Christ while living in the midst of Utah’s Mormon culture. Mormons were constantly trying to convert her, while she was trying to convert them. When the strict rules handed down by her church began to cause her panic attacks, she left.
Ashlen then went on to help women leave polygamist groups, organize events for the International Cultic Studies Association, contribute to CultNews101 and, most recently, started her own LLC called People Leave Cults.
Join us on Friday, Oct. 28 for a conversation with Ashlen about her life and work. We’ll also be discussing the age-old question of “what is a cult?”
