Rally for Harvey Milk SFO
Friday Feb 22, 2013 12:00pm-3:00pm in San Francisco
“My uncle gave everything to the cause of civil rights. Now he needs your help.” - Stuart Milk, Nephew of Harvey Milk.

Make your voice heard and urge the Board of Supervisors to support Supervisor David Campos's Harvey Milk SFO Charter Amendment.

San Francisco City Hall, Polk Street steps
Friday, February 22nd
12:00 Noon

Supported by the nation’s largest LGBT organizations, including over 20 local, state and national groups along with more than a dozen local elected leaders because:

80 airports in the United States are named after individuals; not one is named after an LGBT leader. Airport naming is a common honor, and has been used extensively to identify values and leaders important to a region. Yet the LGBT community is currently excluded.

Harvey Milk is the most important figure in San Francisco’s LGBT history and deserves an honor of this magnitude. He was the first gay man to win elective office in San Francisco, an authentic political hero, and world-renowned leader for civil rights. Adding Harvey’s name to the airport is a fitting honor. It will forward the civil rights cause for which he lived and died.

Being gay is illegal in 77 countries, and gay youth continue to be bullied, discriminated against and excluded. Adding Harvey Milk’s name to SFO will send a national and international message about the struggle for equality. With gay rights on the national agenda and before the Supreme Court, this is the right time and place to educate the 40 million passengers a year who fly through SFO.
