As Vermont Goes, So Goes The Nation

Nov 12, 2012

Gay marriage supporters won big on election night. Same sex marriage laws were upheld in Maine and Maryland, and in Minnesota, a proposed constitutional amendment to limit the definition of marriage was defeated. We'll consider what's next for gay marriage rights in the U.S. Vermont legalized civil unions more than a dozen years ago now and gay marriage in 2009. Have your opinions about gay marriage changed in the last decade? What lessons can activists in other states- on both sides of the issue- take from the battles here in Vermont?

Our guests are Vermont Law School professor Greg Johnson and lawyer and VT Freedom To Marry founder Susan Murray.

Also, we'll get an update on the Air National Guard troops that recently deployed to Afghanistan.
