Marriage Equality Advocate Beth Robinson named “Vermonter of the Year.”
January 5, 2010
I’ve known Beth Robinson for over ten years, getting to know her best after her success in bringing the issue of equal rights for same-sex couples before the Vermont Supreme Court. Her success led to the Vermont legislature creating the then unheard of term “civil unions” in July, 2000. When I lived in Vermont I worked closely with Beth and her team to protect this historic victory by helping re-elect the legislators who took the first brave steps in our country and voted in support of civil unions. Beth is tenacious, smart and a Vermonter to the core. I have learned from her. She is not only “Vermonter of the Year” according to the Burlington Free Press, but a true hero of the fight for LGBT equality and an American hero.
