National Gun Violence Awareness Day

June 1, 2018 @ 1:00 am – 10:00 pm

Because of the gun lobby’s grip on our elected leaders, gun violence continues to kill our families, friends, and neighbors. When high school student Hadiya Pendleton was shot and killed in 2013, her friends turned their grief into action, and transformed orange into the color of gun violence prevention. And every year, for Hadiya’s birthday, we wear orange to show our collective power.

We’re going to show the power of orange. We are the more than 90% of Americans who support strong gun laws and we are fighting to end gun violence. We are going to elect candidates who believe in common sense gun laws. We will break this deadly cycle with an orange wave in November, and we are counting on you to stand with us.
