NLGJA board member Susan Green is a professor at the Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University with more than 20 years experience in broadcast journalism. She recently married Robin Phillips, also a fellow journalist, in Massachusetts.
Susan wrote about her marriage for NPR:
Thursday’s court decision concerning the Defense of Marriage Act is not the first time my family has been involved in fighting for the right to marry. Back in 1961 my parents — my African-American father and white mother — had to ask permission to wed … Now, here I am almost 50 years later fighting the same fight they fought all those years ago.
Congratulations to Susan and Robin!
