Harvey Milk Celebration Dinner

IUPUI's seventh annual Harvey Milk Dinner will take place on Saturday, October 22 at the Downtown Marriott in Indianapolis. The reception will begin at 6:30 p.m.

IUPUI is pleased to host Ms. Precious Davis as this year's keynote speaker. Precious Davis is an award winning diversity professional, social justice facilitator, and keynote speaker. Davis finds deep meaning in engaging individuals in conversation surrounding bias, bigotry, and prejudice in their communities on the basis and belief that humans can coexist with one another positively through the embracing of each other's differences and the celebrating of human diversity. Davis recently was awarded the prestigious "30 under 30" award from the Windy City Times and was invited to The White House LGBT Pride reception where she had the honor of meeting President Obama. Davis is also the first transgender bride to be featured on TLC's "Say Yes to the Dress" and is currently the Assistant Director of Diversity Recruitment Initiatives at Columbia College Chicago.
