Moscone: A Legacy of Change is a film produced by his alma mater, University of the Pacific, directed by veteran filmmaker Nat Katzman and narrated by Emmy-Award winning narrator and actor Peter Coyote.
On Nov. 27, it will have been 40 years since the assassination of George Moscone. A trailblazer in diversity and inclusion, his political legacy as a state senator includes championing bills that established California’s school lunch program, mandated bilingual education in public schools, and overturned the state’s sodomy statute. He also worked on abortion rights, gun control, the death penalty, and lessening of marijuana penalties. As the mayor of San Francisco, Moscone was intentional about including people who were traditionally left out — women, African-Americans, Asians, LGBT and others — in government more than ever before. Moscone gave many Californians the respect and dignity they longed for but never expected to gain. This documentary includes interviews with Willie Brown, John Burton, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, George Deukmejian, and others.
