Description: Also known as the Briggs Initiative, California Proposition 6 was an initiative in 1978 that proposed to ban LGBT individuals and their supporters from working in public schools. It was part of a broader movement to limit gay rights sponsored by Anita Bryant and the Save Our Children organization. The campaign failed overwhelmingly following a vigorous opposition by public figures including Harvey Milk, then-governor Ronald Reagan, and Jimmy Carter.
