Harvey Milk Commemorative Dinner




General information about the Harvey Milk Commemorative Dinner at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.

Harvey Milk Commemorative Dinner

Monday, May 19, 2014 in the Reeve Union Ballroom                              

Doors open at 5:30 p.m.


This dinner honors the courage and spirit of Harvey Milk, whose activism set an example of the crucial connection between education and social change. This event is a way to encourage and support all members and allies of the LGBTQ community at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and the Greater Fox Valley.


Our goal is to raise awareness and provide scholarships for both LGBTQ students at UW Oshkosh and LGBTQ high school students in the Fox Valley. We also offer financial assistance towards projects that are dedicated to improving the climate in Fox Valley's K-12 systems.

Through education, volunteerism and service, the Harvey Milk Commemorative Dinner Committee will serve the surrounding communities as a positive force for dignity and recognition.

Keynote speaker

This years keynote speaker is JoCasta Zamarripa.


One of two openly LGBTQ+ members of the Wisconsin Legislature. In 2010 Representative Zamarripa made history as the first Latina elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly. A 2005 Graduate of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, she has worked as an educator and community outreach coordinator at Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. She was also active with 9 to 5 National Association of Working Women, served as board secretary for 9 to 5 Milwaukee, and was a board member for Equality Wisconsin. Representative Zamarripa also serves on the Governor's Council on Migrant Labor and is a member of the National Association of Latino Elected Officials (NALEO).
