Openly gay California Assembly Speaker John A. Perez speaks about the importance of coalition building and the legacy of Harvey Milk.

Choice quote: “We know that the arc of history is long, and it does in fact bend toward justice. But the bending of that arc is our collective responsibility, because there will always be those who resist. Our job is to insure that we keep that arc bending toward justice. And we are vastly stronger in that effort when we have allies at our side.”
