Annual Loving Civil Rights Award 


Named for the couple that fought the ultimate form of housing discrimination when they were barred from living in Virginia because of their interracial marriage, our annual Mildred & Richard Loving Civil Rights Award honors civil rights leaders and thinkers, those who have worked to change the course of history, those who have challenged how history is written, and those who are making history today.   All proceeds from this event benefit the Connecticut Fair Housing Center’s work to ensure that all people have equal access to the housing opportunities of their choice, free from discrimination.
