Evann Orleck-Jetter: Moving Marriage Equality Forward in Vermont

Democracy Now recently interviewed 12-year old Evann Orleck-Jetter , who may have played an instrumental - if not the key - role in advancing the case for marriage equality with the Vermont legislature.

As Democracy Now notes on its website, "Orleck-Jetter testified at the public hearings on gay marriage last month before Vermont’s Joint Senate and House Judiciary Committees. Many legislators later told Evann and her parents that her testimony had moved them to support the bill."

Our hats are off to Evann, who talks about her testimony - and her family - in this video from Amy Goodman and Democracy Now.
