Urge California Governor to Sign Harvey Milk Day Bill

Last year the California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed the Harvey Milk Day bill, saying that Milk was a figure of merely local significance.

Whether you live in Palm Springs, the Central Valley, or far northern California, let the Governor know that Milk was an LGBT hero who truly changed the world and is worthy of a state day of special significance.

We haven't let last year's veto deter us, and have this year introduced SB 572, which would establish May 22 each year as Harvey Milk Day. With the film, Milk, and the help of its star Sean Penn we have great momentum, but we also need your help! Tell the governor your story about how Harvey has impacted your life, and why everyone in all corners of the Golden State needs heroes.

Use EQCA's form to contact the governor to sign the Harvey Milk Day Bill.
