Social Justice Film Series video on Harvey Milk

VERO BEACH — The community-wide, interdenominational Social Justice Film Series continues its fourth season at 7 p.m. on Sunday, December 6, with a film about Harvey Milk and his struggles as an American gay activist.  Milk fought for gay rights and became a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, the first openly gay elected official in the United States.

The screening will take place at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Vero Beach.  It is open to the public, there is no charge and no reservations are needed.

The film tells the story of Milk’s rise from disaffected middle-aged hippie to national symbol; an ordinary man, kind, funny, flawed, shrewd, idealistic, yearning for a better world.  It is a film about a transformed life, a victory for individual freedom over state persecution, and a political and social cause. A discussion will follow the film, facilitated by the Rev. Dr. Maureen Killoran.

The UUFVB Fair Trade Corner will be open one-half hour prior to the film.
