Wow, wow, wow. Wear Orange weekend (June 7-9) is already BIG. Nearly 3,000 people have joined more than 600 community events across the country for Wear Orange weekend — to make a statement we gather to show that Americans are unified in the effort to end gun violence.

On Friday June 7, National Gun Violence Awareness Day, we kick off #WearOrange weekend by wearing orange and sharing online. Then, through the weekend we’ll come together for community events all around the country.

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 live cut short and the hundreds more wounded by gun violence every day. Be a part of the #WearOrange movement by joining an event on Wear Orange weekend!
