On the 12th of June 1967, the US Supreme Court decided that the ban of interracial marriages was unconstitutionnal. This decision ends the 9 year legal battle of a mixed couple in times of segregation. This decision is a milestone for the end of segregation in the US.

50 years later, the fight for multiculturalism is still an issue! In the years 2000, a civil society movement in the US created "the Loving day" to remember that decision and to celebrate diversity. 

Our network, the European Network for Binationa-Bicultural couples&families

has decided to celebrate the Loving day across Europe. 

 

We invite you to come along to celebrate transnational love, diversity and multiculturalism!
