We just received a troubling signal that the Governor may be considering opposing the Harvey Milk Day bill. We must show a groundswell of support.
The Governor’s Secretary of Education recently sent a letter opposing the bill that reads:
The Secretary of Education is wrong. Last year’s veto message is no longer applicable. Earlier this month, President Obama posthumously honored Milk with the Medal of Freedom, our country’s highest civilian honorâa testament to the fact that Harvey Milk is a national and international hero. And earlier this year the Governor acknowledged that Harvey’s contributions impacted all Californians when his administration honored him for his work in fighting discrimination in the State of California.
Please, call one of the Governor’s discrtict offices, and express support for SB 572, the Harvey Milk Day Bill.
Over 30,000 people have signed our petition to the Governor, but that’s not enough. Please email and call him right now.
Harvey Milk is a true inspiration to the millions of people who believe in equality, and he deserves to be recognized by the state he helped transform.
