We believe that love always wins. It might take patience, courage, and tenacity… but love is what unites us. Loving Day, celebrated on June 12, is a wonderful day to reflect on the power of love. Here’s a bit more about this special day excerpted from lovingday.org:
The Loving Day name comes from Loving v. Virginia (1967), the landmark Supreme Court decision that declared all laws against interracial marriage unconstitutional in the United States. We found it quite perfect that a couple named Richard and Mildred Loving won their right to marry, and we know a good thing when we see it. So, Loving Day refers to two kinds of loving: the couple in the Supreme Court case, and the original definition of loving.
Like the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, Loving Day provides an annual opportunity for people to learn history’s lessons while envisioning ways to improve the future. However, Loving Day is not limited to a single annual event. It’s also an educational campaign that you can be a part of every day. We provide free and accessible educational resources all year long, many of which are available through the Loving Day website. We believe that education is a necessary part of promoting tolerance, awareness, and understanding.
