Loving Day Celebrations mark the anniversary of Loving v. Virginia (1967), the Supreme Court decision that legalized interracial couples in the United States. These celebrations are held every year on or around June 12th.
This is a video of the Loving Day Flagship Celebration we hosted in New York City, which is the largest of these events (over 1000 guests). We also encourage people to host their own celebrations for friends and family. In 2009, there were 31 celebrations in 3 countries. Loving Day Celebrations are shared among friends and passed down through families to establish a new multicultural tradition.
Loving Day fights racial prejudice through education and builds multicultural community. It's a global network of annual celebrations that you can host or attend. It's also an educational campaign that you can be a part of every day.
