Sixty Plus Lecture - “California Politics” with Tom Ammiano
Tom Ammiano, Politician and LGBT Rights Activist
Tom Ammiano has kept his topic very broad, and certainly he will bring an interesting perspective on the current politics in California ─ and possibly the rest of the country.
Born to a working-class Italian family in Montclair, New Jersey, he attended high school there and attended Seton Hall University. He moved to San Francisco in 1963 and earned a master’s degree in special education from SF State in 1965. From 1966 – 1968 he was an English teacher in a small town in South Vietnam, serving with a Quaker development group. Tom has been an LGBT activist for many years – and also has served on the San Francisco Board of Education, San Francisco Board of Supervisors, and in the California State Assembly from 2008 – 2014.
