Loving Day

June 12—the anniversary of the Loving v. Virginia decision—is now commemorated each year as “Loving Day.” This day references the names of Mildred and Richard Loving, who fought against the laws confining them and everyone else from marrying interracially.

About the event

Love is celebrated beyond race and color on National Loving Day on June 12. This day is all about celebrating love beyond boundaries. The Lovings set a precedent, and have been a symbol of love against all odds for many. Their love story is cherished, with interracial married couples sharing their stories online as an inspiration to others.

On this day, messages on love and intermarriages are encouraged and shared online, and support is extended to people from different ethnicities who wish to marry someone who doesn’t share the same background as them. Watching movies centered around love stories between people from different backgrounds are watched on this day, and discussions on the topic of intermarriage are held on various social media platforms as well.
