Supporters of an effort to rename San Francisco International Airport after former San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, will hold a rally at City Hall this afternoon.

Last month, San Francisco supervisor David Campos introduced legislation to rename the airport Harvey Milk San Francisco International.

Milk was California's first openly gay elected official. He was assassinated along with Mayor George Moscone in 1978.

Organizers say the 12:00 p.m. rally is to urge the other supervisors to support Campos' legislation.

Voters may get the opportunity to decide on the name change in November.
