A PRINCIPLED LEADER: HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN NAMED ROCKY AS ONE OF TOP 10 STRAIGHT ALLIES IN THE U.S. FOR LGBTQ+ EQUALITY
Rocky Anderson has spent much of his adult life helping those in need and fighting for the civil and human rights of all. That’s why he received the American Association for Justice’s national In Defense of Civil Liberties Award. His support of equality for the LGBTQ+ community came much earlier than almost anyone in politics. When Rocky supported same sex marriage during his congressional race in 1996, he knew it would probably cost him the election (it did), but his commitment to principled leadership meant more to him than winning an election.
