Today, we honor the legacy of an extraordinary leader who fought tirelessly for queer liberation and social justice. In the Green Party, we embrace the vision and commitment to equality that Harvey Milk exemplified.
Harvey Milk, an openly gay elected official, blazed a trail in the late 1970s as one of the first openly gay individuals to hold public office in California. He fearlessly advocated for the rights of the LGBTQIA+ community, inspiring countless individuals to embrace their authentic selves and demand equality. His dedication, courage, and unwavering spirit continue to resonate with us today as we work towards a society that values and uplifts the voice of the oppressed.
The National Lavendar Green Caucus recognizes that the fight for queer liberation is inseparable from our commitment to social, economic, and ecological justice. We know that diversity and equity are not just buzzwords but the cornerstones of a thriving society.
Join us in celebrating Harvey Milk's legacy and embrace the power of collective action. Together, we can break down barriers, challenge discriminatory systems, and create a world where love, acceptance, and equality triumph.
Thank you for your continued support and dedication to the principles of the Green Party. With your help, we can achieve our collective liberation and make those principles a reality.
