Welcome! The mission of the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee is to foster an educational environment where diverse viewpoints and backgrounds are welcomed and respected. We want Harvey Milk staff, students, and their families to feel comfortable and empowered to discuss diversity and inclusion.
We strive to inspire and maintain a growth mindset as we work toward a world free of racism, classism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, ageism, Islamophobia, and transphobia.

March Against Profiling
On Saturday 5/22, The S.F. chapter of the NAACP continued the fight against profiling at the Church Street.
Members of the HMCRA sent in this report from the rally :
“We were there and as well as some heavy hitters in the community— Rev. Amos Brown and other reps from the NAACP, school board, district, supes (Mendleman was a no show) and a New Orleans band! Not to mention our fearless leader, principal Stewart, his two sons, the head of naacp youth.
Even the president of Nor cal Safeway showed up and we got an official APOLOGY!!!
We spoke up and they heard us! Yay!!”
We gathered at 19th and Collingwood at 1:15pm on May 5th and marched together against racism, discrimination, and harmful biases.
Read this letter to learn the reasons behind this march.
