No Loving Day celebrations in the Bay Area?! We decided to remedy that by setting up a gathering on June 14th at Casanova Park in San Mateo. Bring a blanket & picnic (and a little extra to share!), and hang out with other happy, loving folks! ♥

*We're celebrating the anniversary of Loving v. Virginia, the 1967 landmark Supreme Court decision that declared all laws against interracial marriage in the United States unconstitutional -- a gathering for those who value multicultural awareness, the elimination of racial prejudice, the beauty of interracial relationships, and diversity.

In addition to being an important Supreme Court case, Loving v. Virginia is also the story of a real couple: Richard and Mildred Loving. This celebration honors their courage and victory for civil rights. Read their story here: http://lovingday.org/the-loving-story
