Anti-Gun Violence Groups Are Wearing Orange for Awareness

June 2nd is National Gun Violence Awareness Day, a campaign organized by the Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund -- a nonprofit organization of Americans working together to end gun violence. The day marks a moment in time where millions of Americans come together to stand up for a world where people can live a life free from gun violence.

In honor of this momentous day, Americans are helping spread the message by wearing orange, which according to, symbolizes "the value of human life." In addition to wearing orange, Everytown for Gun Safety is asking the public to spread awareness by posting a pledge on social media stating who they're wearing orange for.
