Utah Politics of religion, sex and family with Rod Decker

Friends of the Library Lecture with Rod Decker

For 40 years, Utah politics have pitted the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints republicans against “non-Mormon” democrats – and the republicans have won. Utah is among the most republican states in the United States, but it wasn’t always so. From statehood to the mid-1970s, Utah followed the political mainstream, voting with American majorities and enjoying strong, two-party competition.

Retired journalist and published author Rod Decker will speak about the evolution of Utah politics regarding religion, sex and family on November 7th at 7 p.m. in room 101. This event is free and open to the public.
