Let’s make Loving Day an OFFICIAL Federal Day – Acknowledging multiracial families #LovingDay

In 1967 the US Supreme Court made a decision between the Lovings vs Virginia, which struck down all US State Laws banning interracial marriage – mainly between non-whites and whites. This is a day to remember and a day that should be celebrated until the end of time. I know that it's easy to get wrapped up in all of the hate, but we truly are a loving nation and we should remember where we came from. I couldn't imagine a life that wouldn't allow me to be with the one that I love.

Join me and thousands of others by signing this petition to make Loving Day an official Federal Day. Besides, we can never have enough love.

To help familiarize yourself with the story of the Lovings, watch the first clip for the upcoming film, Loving, based on the Lovings. Seriously, this film is going to be absolutely incredible. Just watching this clip brings tears to my house. The thought of not being able to be with the one you love just breaks my heart. This movie is on the very top of my “must watch” list.

Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry – and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.
