I just discovered an organization called MASC, or Multiracial Americans of Southern California (via the NAME listserve). The organization caters to the needs of multiracial people, people involved in interracial relationships, and transracial adoptees. Pretty cool, huh?
Things I learned today from looking at their website:
• This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the Loving v. Virginia Supreme Court Decision, the court case that legalized interracial marriage in the United States. I can, on a very personal level, be grateful for that case!
• In 1997, the Office of Management and Budget mandated that by 2003, all Federal forms allow individuals to choose more than one race.
