Dan Fischer-D.D.S-2007-Life As A Fundamentalist

MP3 File

Saturday's dinner speaker was Dan Fischer, D.D.S., former member of the FLDS church.

While maintaining his dental practice, along with research and development of dental materials and procedures, he has created Smiles for Diversity, a nonprofit foundation committed to preventing hate crimes by promoting diversity and multicultural awareness.

As a child, Dan was raised in a third-generation polygamous home. Eleven years ago, he left the FLDS religion, and as part of his dedication to promoting understanding among diverse cultures, he has become deeply involved in helping the young boys (some as young as 13) who are literally kicked out of their polygamous communities and abandoned by their polygamous families.

Known as "The Lost Boys", they find themselves on the streets of Salt Lake without education, without money, and without hope.
