About Just Love…Just is simple and pure when it precedes Love. Just is a play on words, representing both the abbreviated Justice and the simplicity of the act of Love. Love is the backbone and core of everything we do – we love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Love in its purest form sees beauty in skin color and celebrates whom we love. Our mission, plain and simple, is to see love established in public which creates justice for all. Just love.
