FRIENDS OF HARVEY MILK PLAZA IS A CASTRO NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION COMMITTED TO MAINTAINING AND IMPROVING THE PUBLIC SPACE NAMED IN HONOR OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS ICON

San Francisco’s Harvey Milk Plaza, at the heart of the Castro District, is sacred ground for LGBT civil rights history. Friends of Harvey Milk Plaza is undertaking this current effort to reimagine and reinvigorate this public space into a fitting and lasting tribute to the plaza’s history and namesake, so that Harvey Milk’s legacy may continue to educate and inspire generations of visitors. This new plaza will call to visitors and inspire them to create change in their own lives and in their own communities. The Friends of Harvey Milk Plaza want to build a place where hope will live, forever.

“Harvey understood that the LGBT community was part of something larger, and creating something special here will inspire others to carry on the global movement for peace and social justice." - Cleve Jones
