OWEN SMITH: “I AM ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE”

by Troy Williams

Owen Smith is the manager of community programs with Equality Utah.  He is a Wisconsin native whose earliest memories include marching with his mother on a labor picket line.  He took from his parents a determination to work for a more just world.  Today, he is working with Equality Utah to pass SB100, a bill designed to protect LGBT Utahns from discrimination in both housing and the workplace.  As a transgender man living in Utah, Owen has first hand experience with the bitter realities of  discrimination.
