  • Джон Бриггс (англ. John V. Briggs, род. в 1930 г. в Митчелле, штат Южная Дакота, США) — американский политический деятель, бывший член законодательной Ассамблеи штата Калифорния и калифорнийского Сената. Бриггс получил известность в 1978 году, как автор и инициатор Поправки №6, так называемой «Инициативы Бриггса». Законопроект предусматривал запрет геям и лесбиянкам работать в государственных школах Калифорнии, что должно было вызвать массовые увольнения. Однако по итогам референдума проект был отклонён. События вокруг Поправки №6 были воссозданы в документальном фильме «Времена Харви Милка» 1984 года, а также в художественном фильме «Харви Милк» 2008 года, в котором Джона Бриггса сыграл Дэнис О'Харе.
