Friday, June 7th is National Gun Violence Awareness Day and Wear Orange Weekend is to show that Americans are unified in the effort to end gun violence. Wear Orange weekend starts on Friday by wearing orange and sharing online. Then, community events will be held throughout the weekend, all around the US.
The color orange has a long and proud history in the gun violence prevention movement. Whether it's worn by hunters, Moms, or students across the country, orange honors the 100 lives cut short and the hundreds more wounded by gun violence every day.
Don't forget to wear the color orange on June 7th!
