GLBT Pride Month 2013: The Times of Harvey Milk
In 1978, human rights activist Harvey Milk was assassinated, less than a year after being voted San Francisco’s city supervisor. His work and assassination made him a symbol for the GLBT community and created a legacy of activism. In 2009, Milk was awarded a posthumous Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor.
Join the Office of Diversity for a viewing of a film based on his life, The Times of Harvey Milk.
