Help keep Harvey's message of hope and inclusion alive with your purchase. All funds raised help support the Harvey Milk Foundation. The Harvey Milk Foundation (HMF) is a leading global non-profit that promotes Harvey Milk’s inspiring legacy through human rights education and global outreach. In 1977, Harvey Milk (1930-1978) became the first openly LGBT elected official to a major office in the United States. He was assassinated in San Francisco’s City Hall 11 months later. The all-volunteer foundation was cofounded by Harvey’s nephew, Stuart Milk. Today, the Harvey Milk Foundation provides on-the-ground support and award-winning programing to struggling and emerging LGBT communities on six continents with over four dozen dedicated volunteer leaders, and long-term partnerships in 34 nations.
