By the education of parents and students of Harvey Milk Day and persistence, Harvey Milk Day was recognized on March 27th by FUSD!

Harvey Milk Day is held each year on May 22nd.  Harvey Milk was a politician and an activist who was important to LGBT history, as he served as the first openly gay politician. He worked hard to try to end discrimination in this nation, and state, against LGBT people. We, the students and parents of Fremont Unified School District, do not support the School Board's decision to not recognize Harvey Milk Day!

      Everyone should be treated equally whether they are normal, or other type of people, They must feel like they are a part of a society that values each person as a human being and they have liberties and rights like any other normal human being.

      As a teacher at Washington High School in Fremont I feel it is important to stand up and affirm all students. Harvey Milk represents the fight against discrimination of all kinds and should be recognized by the District.
