2017 A Vigil for Harvey

Harvey Milk Plaza, Castro & Market Streets, SF

There will be a short speaking program from legacy club members and community leaders. Then we will also open the mic for folks who would like to say a few words, then have a short candlelit walk to the spot of Harvey’s camera shop, now the HRC store.

On November 27, 1978 Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone were killed as they served the public in City Hall. On the night of their murders a group of tens of thousands gathered in the Castro and began an impromptu candlelit march to City Hall. The event commemorates the lives and untimely deaths of these two extraordinary individuals on the anniversary of their assassinations in 1978 and commemorating the spontaneous candlelight march the night of the shootings.
