"love has no labels"
Most Americans agree that people should be treated respectfully and fairly. Yet many people in the United States still report feeling discriminated against. For example, one in five LGBT people report feeling there is little or no acceptance of their community. Six in ten Latinos report that discrimination is a major problem and a majority of African Americans report that they are not satisfied with the way they are treated in society.
The reason might be that we're actuallydiscriminating unintentionally--some call this implicit bias. Implicit biasinfluences how we treat people and how we interact with each other. Morebroadly, it can perpetuate disparities by impacting someone's ability to find ajob, secure a loan, rent an apartment or get a fair trial. To end bias, we needto become aware of it. And then we need to do everything within our power tostop it in ourselves, others, and institutions.
The year, “We Are America”, an extension of the iconic Love Has No Labels campaign, aims to flood culture with images of counter bias love to communicate an important and inspiring message – to love America is to love all Americans. New PSAs, featuring WWE Superstar John Cena, continue to further acceptance of all communities regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age and ability.
“We Are America” invites everyone to submit their photos to demonstrate the true diversity that makes up America at lovehasnolabels.com.
