Debi Hartmann is working with gay activists and Democratic leaders in Hawaii to enact civil unions. The move represents a stark change for Hartmann, who once led Hawaii's Future Today, a conservative group of Mormons, Catholics and others who opposed gay unions. "Real people live real lives," she said. "We need to realize that our neighbors are our friends, and they are being left out of a whole social process that we have taken for granted." [Link]
