Dustin Lance Black's acceptance speech at Oscars

Last night at the Oscars, Sean Penn and Dustin Lance Black took home Oscars for their contributions to Milk. Screenwriter, Dustin Black, gave an amazing acceptance speech that Harvey Milk would have been proud of. Our friend and human rights activist, Cleve Jones, must have been very proud and happy last night. He worked very hard to see that Harvey's legacy was made into a movie for millions to see the story of the man who has inspired generations of the gay and lesbian community.

Sean Penn won the Oscar for Best Actor and Dustin Lance Black took home the award for Best Original Screenplay.

The Courage Campaign is asking you to thank Dustin Lance Black, Sean Penn and Cleve Jones for working so hard to make "MILK". They are asking you to sign this letter:

"Thank you, Dustin Lance Black, Sean Penn and Cleve Jones, for bringing 'Milk' and Harvey Milk's message of hope to millions. In the aftermath of Prop 8, we all need hope and inspiration. Thank you for your continued activism in the movement to restore marriage equality to California."
