Build Our Center
Build Our Center, would like to invite you to participate in our first Harvey Milk Day, Wednesday, May 22.
We choose to celebrate Harvey Milk as he strived for the same purposes our organizations does. He worked long and hard to build strengthen and connect the community.
Our event will feature a special screening of the academy award winning film Milk, a Spaghetti Feed Dinner and Sauce Contest and the first annual MILK Made Awards at The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Northern Nevada.
We need your help to make it happen.
“Harvey Milk, was a visionary civil and human rights leader who became one of the first openly gay elected officials in the United States when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977. Milk’s unprecedented loud and unapologetic proclamation of his authenticity as an openly gay candidate for public office, and his subsequent election gave never before experienced hope to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered (LGBT) people everywhere at a time when the community was encountering widespread hostility and discrimination. His remarkable career was tragically cut short when he was assassinated nearly a year after taking office.” -Harvey Milk Foundation.
We are looking for an assortment of business, groups or organizations to contribute to this event. We would love to see you and your team here.
