A New TV Spot Encourages You To Vote For Love #VoteLoving
Last night before the debate there was a new TV spot called #VoteLoving, reminding people that love is an important thing to think about this election year. I am usually hesitant to post anything political on my blog, except I believe a huge injustice is served when politicians build a platform on social injustice. When this happens; people stop talking about it because, now, it becomes political. Social issues are not political, they are social and they should be important to every single one of us. The Lovings’ story shows that every voice matters. Richard and Mildred Loving’s story showed us that love is stronger than hate and has the power to spark real change. During this election season, we’re encouraging everyone to show that simply conveying love can change the world. Join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #VoteLoving.
Richard and Mildred Loving’s story showed us that love is stronger than hate and has the power to spark real change. To learn more about film and the #VoteLoving campaign, visit VoteLoving.com.

From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, LOVING celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. 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.
