“The Annual Milk-Moscone Memorial March will take place this Saturday, November 27, 2010. The vigil will take place on the anniversary of the assassination of Harvey Milk and George Moscone, starting at 6pm. The vigil will last approximatly 1 hour and the march will begin at the Castro Muni station (Castro & Market Streets) at 6:45 PM.

The March commemorates the assassination of Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone and is an opportunity for the community to mourn the loss of two of our city’s most progressive elected officials, reflect on their visions for San Francisco, and learn more about their lives through testimony from family and friends of Harvey. The event has been a community tradition annually since the assassinations. The speakers will be:

Cleve Jones, Founder, Names Project, and friend of Harvey

Harry Britt, former Supervisor, and friend of Harvey

David Campos, SF Supervisor

Carol Migden, former State Senator

Tom Ammiano, State Assembly member

The Milk Memorial Education Committee was founded in 2004 to plan for and install the bust of Harvey in San Francisco City Hall. The bust was installed in May 2008. The Committee is now engaged in educational programs at the SF Unifed School district and City College of San Francisco, on behalf of LGBTQ students.
