Tell the Governor Harvey Milk Matters

Sign the petition to Governor Schwarzenegger urging him to sign the legislation making May 22 “Harvey Milk Day” in the State of California.

Last year, Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed the bill, saying that Milk was a figure of only local significance.

Harvey Milk was—and still is—an inspiration not only as one of the first openly gay men elected to office, but as a trail blazer who understood the value of working with allies, the importance of living our lives openly with authenticity and the power that our stories have to change hearts and minds.

Make sure the Governor knows how important Harvey is to all Californians. Sign the petition above and call the governors office. It is automated, and you don't need to speak to anyone to voice your opinion!

Schwarzenegger would rather fight to keep himself and other rich people from paying their fair share in taxes than do this.

Schwarzenegger wouldn't understand the global significance of Milk. It must sting that his former peers disagree by awarding the movie,"Milk", with significance. A true leader who fought complete adversity to rise above or a pot smoking, steroid injecting, "action star" cum wannabe politician for a role model in the history books?
