The Power of Youth Activism: The U.S. Experience

Come to meet our special honorary guest - Stuart Milk, an international human rights activist, LGBT rights speaker, government relations consultant, and youth advocate. He is the co-founder and board president of the all volunteer Harvey Milk Foundation. As the nephew of Harvey Milk, the iconic civil rights leader, Stuart has taken his uncle message of authenticity, example of courage and the power of collaboration onto the global stage supporting local, regional and national human rights struggles and emerging LGBT communities on five continents.

Stuart successfully led campaigns for the establishment of the now annual Harvey Milk Day holiday in California and Milks’ induction into the California Hall of Fame. On behalf of his uncle, he accepted the highest civilian honor in the US, the Medal of Freedom, from President Barack Obama. Stuart continues to lead efforts to have the legacy of Harvey Milk taught in public schools, memorialized on buildings, LGBT Centers, monuments and parks. He is a regular television commentator on LGBT rights and the broader global human rights struggle for NBC Universal affiliates MSNBC, being seen frequently on national US broadcast and cable TV as well as on international broadcasts by the BBC, SKY and VTV in Asia. Milk is also a contributor to the Huffington Post.

Stuart Milk will discuss questions of diversity and inclusion in a democratic society, the fight for LGBTI Equality, the power of youth activism and lessons learned from the U.S. Experience.
