This dinner honors the courage and spirit of Harvey Milk, whose activism set an example of the crucial connection between education and social change. This event is a way to encourage and support all members and allies of the LGBTQ+ community at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and the Greater Fox Valley.
Our goal is to raise awareness and provide scholarships for both LGBTQ+ students at UW Oshkosh and LGBTQ+ high school students in the Fox Valley who will be enrolling at one of the UW Oshkosh campuses. Through education, volunteerism and service, the Harvey Milk LGBTQ+ Scholarship Dinner Committee will serve the surrounding communities as a positive force for dignity and recognition.
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 Transgender (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
