The Other World, flyers, notes, and other administrative records, 1978-1982, from the Santa Barbara Coalition for Human Rights (SBCHR). The
SBCHR was founded in 1978 to advocate for gay and lesbian rights, as well as other progressive causes.
The Santa Barbara Coalition for Human Rights (SBCHR) was an organization that advocated for a variety of human rights issues,
including, but not limited to, gay and lesbian rights. The SBCHR formed in 1978 to defeat California Proposition 6, also
known as the Briggs Initiative, that would have mandated the firing of gay and lesbian public school teachers and schoolworkers.
After the defeat of the Briggs Initiative, the SBCHR primarily focused its activities on advocating for gay and lesbian rights
ordinances in the Santa Barbara and Ventura County areas. It was also involved in other progressive causes and activism at
the state level.
