Conservative group's campaign against Harvey Milk Day

A conservative political action group called Save California is running a media campaign this weekend against Harvey Milk Day.

Save California is urging parents to keep their kids home on Tuesday, when many school districts dedicate at least some of the day to classes about the gay rights pioneer.

But Save California's head says students shouldn't be forced to participate without written parental consent.

It's the second year California has held a day honoring Milk, California's first openly gay elected office holder.
