Description
Meeting minutes, articles of incorporation, bylaws, correspondence, press manuals, clippings, flyers, press releases, financial records, notes, project proposals, and other material documenting activities of the New Alliance for Gay Equality (New AGE), 1970-1979. New AGE was founded in 1977 to raise consciousness of gay and lesbian rights, and to "pass legislation in Los Angeles that will secure the civil rights of gay citizens, and to defend those rights if challenged." The organization's activities included opposing the passage of the California Proposition 6 Briggs Initiative in 1977-1978.
Background
The New Alliance for Gay Equality (New AGE) was founded on June 21, 1977 in Los Angeles, California. New AGE was a non-profit political committee made up of more than thirty groups and individuals who wanted to educate, advocate and legislate for equal human rights, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. The founding members of New AGE included Bobbi Bennett, Sydney Crocker, Myra Riddell, and Jerold Krieger. To coordinate and implement the goals set forth by New AGE they retained the partnership of David B. Mixner and Peter Scott of Mixner/Scott Associates.
