Red Bridge Society AMBW/BLASIAN COMMUNITY will unite with thousands for this historical weekend of LOVE! To remember the 1958 Supreme Court case of Loving v. Virginia. Their victory became OUR freedom. Interracial families and individuals now come together to celebrate, understand and be proud of our identity. Our Black and Asian community is proud to be a part of this powerful movement of LOVE!

"The freedom to love is something most of us take for granted. Like many other freedoms, the right for interracial couples to be together was fought for and won as a part of our civil rights. Many people see this as the longest-lasting part of the legal segregation that used to rule our nation. The Loving's, like Rosa Parks, played an important role in freeing us from laws that punished people for no other reason than the color of their skin."

After The Event

How did it go?: 

Red Bridge Society's Afro-Asian Community (GA) joined with Lily's Blasian Family (VA) and Meetup Swirling in Atlanta to create a fabulously diverse Loving Day event! We had 72 people in attendance. We laughed, shared our stories and paid tribute to Mr. & Mrs. Richard Loving. Many learned for the first time the legacy and life story of the Lovings. It was a beautiful event celebrating interracial love of all nationalities.

Please visit our local Meetup groups listed above. We come together monthly to celebrate our identity, exchange culture and empower free love. Hope to see you soon. Next year will be even better.
