Flyers, organizational statements, meeting minutes, organizational correspondence, newsletters, clippings, and mailing lists
documenting the founding and activities of the Coalition for Human Rights (Los Angeles). The Coalition was formed in 1977
largely in response to anti-gay and anti-feminist initiatives by Anita Bryant, Phyllis Schaffley, and California State Senator
John Briggs. Much of the material focuses on the Coalition's work organizing opposition to California Proposition 6 Briggs
Initiative in 1978.
The Coalition for Human Rights (Los Angeles) was formed in 1977 to coordinate gay, feminist, and other minority groups' opposition
to anti-gay and anti-feminist initiatives by conservative activists Anita Bryant and Phyllis Schaffley, and to California
Proposition 6 Briggs Initiative. The Coalition sought to mobilize a range of minority interest groups on the grounds that
threats to the rights of one group potentially jeopardized the rights of all.
