Happy Loving Day!
- On June 12th, 1967, Richard and Mildred Loving won their
nine year legal battle and the Supreme Court granted
them the right to be married in the state of Virginia.
This victory also legalized interracial relationships
nationwide, overturning hundreds of years of racist laws.
However, racism is not dead.
There is still racial prejudice in our daily lives.
Loving Day is a great way to fight this prejudice
through education, and to build multicultural community.
Join others all over the world in celebrating Loving Day.
