Please join the 3rd annual Loving Day Vermont, remembering the Supreme Court case of Loving v. Virginia (1967) which legalized interracial marriage! Nearly 50 years ago Mildred and Richard Loving contributed to an ongoing fight for racial justice. Their actions are connected to work that came before them and work that continues through today.
This year’s event will be held in collaboration with the Pride Center of Vermont and include last year’s Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges which legalized same-sex marriage. While is it important to take time to celebrate these legal victories, with this event we hope to engage in thoughtful discussion with couples affected by both court decisions and their allies. Spend a Saturday afternoon in June enjoying light refreshments and sharing your experiences with racial justice and/or heterosexism and/or learning more about the ongoing challenges your follow community members face.
This is event is presented by Loving Day VT, Pride Center Vermont, and the Peace & Justice Center. For more information visit Loving Day Vermont or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
