To the editor:

A recent Readers' Forum letter charges that the ACLU of Utah "runs through the College of Law at the University of Utah." In fact, the ACLU is an independent, privately funded, non-profit corporation. Its offices are located in a downtown office building, not the University of Utah campus.Volunteers from many organizations including Brigham Young University and the University of Utah, serve the ACLU in a variety of capacities.

It is unfortunate that some people, rather than addressing the merits of the ACLU's positions, attempt to undermine it by irrelevant and erroneous attacks on its supporters.
