The latest in the GLBT Historical Society's monthly "Fighting Back" series exploring contemporary queer issues in a historical context, this community forum will highlight the living legacy of Harvey Milk and how it continues to inspire progressive, coalition-based political and electoral organizing in San Francisco and beyond.

Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Harvey Milk and his ally Mayor George Moscone on November 27, 1978, a panel of historians, veteran organizers and young activists will assess how the events of 1978 affected the progressive movement in the city—and how Milk's example continues to inspire work for positive change today.

Panelists include Tom Ammiano, Brad Chapin, Pablo Espinoza, Cleve Jones, Ken Jones, Ani Rivera and Don Romesburg. Moderated by Honey Mahogany.

Cosponsored by the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club.
