California Day of Special SignificanceEdit

In California, Harvey Milk Day is recognized by the state's government as a day of special significance for public schools.[1][2] The day was established by the California legislature and signed into law by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2009[3] following the success of the award-winning feature film Milk retracing Milk's life.[4][5]
