We are celebrating the love between British citizens and immigrants; defying the tabloid, UKIP narrative adopted by this government that scapegoats immigrants and never tells the positive stories of everything they bring to our lives.
We are inviting cross-border couples to join our campaign, to celebrate their love and speak up for their rights. On Valentine’s Day, we will be launching #LoveKnowsNoBorders, a collection of stories of love and friendship between people of different nationalities.
To be part of our campaign, make a short video of just a few seconds, of yourself and your partner. Tell us where you’re each from, what you love about each other and why people should be free to love each other regardless of where they were born.
If you have struggled against immigration enforcement in order to love each other, tell us that story.
If you are worried about what Brexit and an end to Free Movement might mean for your relationship, tell us about that.
If your partner always leaves dirty socks around the house and it drives you mad, tell us that!
Share your video on social media using the hashtag #LoveKnowsNoBorders on Valentine’s Day, and upload it to our website (live on Valentine’s Day: www.loveknowsnoborders.org) or send it to firstname.lastname@example.org so that she can upload it.
If you aren’t able to make a video, a selfie of you and your partner with a message would do!
We strongly encourage participants who are LGBT+ or from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
