Welcome to the Sound Choices Coalition! SCC was established in the fall of 2012 by Kristyn Decker. Kristyn is the daughter of Owen A. Allred, former leader of the Apostolic United Brethren (AUB), a polygamist cult with members living predominantly in Utah, Arizona, Montana, and Mexico. Kristyn spent fifty years in polygamy before leaving to make a new life.
In 2012, Kristyn became impatient with the pro-polygamy propaganda that was appearing in the media. From her own experience and from speaking to many former members of other polygamist cults, she knew that the image being presented was far from the truth. SCC was born as a way of informing the public about polygamy’s realities and as a means to lobbying lawmakers on behalf of the victims of polygamy–particularly children. SCC is a group of like-minded people liaising with sister organizations to bring about a more just society free from the abuses of polygamy.
