Every year the PJC honors activists who are doing the hard work of making change in their communities. This award was inspired by the work of Ed Everts (1919-2013), who was a decades long supporter and member of the PJC.

Loving Day Vermont celebrates the Supreme Court case that legalized interracial marriage in the U.S. and the right to love who we choose. Loving Day is a global network of events commemorating the anniversary of Loving v. Virginia, the 1967 landmark Supreme Court decision that declared all laws against interracial marriage in the United States unconstitutional. Loving Day’s mission is to fight racial prejudice through education and build multicultural community.
