Wear Orange June 7 -10, 2019
Every June, the organization Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America marks National Gun Violence Awareness Day by encouraging people to wear orange, which honors the more than 100 lives cut short and the hundreds more wounded by gun violence every day.
Their movement gains momentum when gun sense activists join together to fight for a future free from gun violence. Wear Orange Weekend is an opportunity to show the country just how powerful they are. And they’re asking Los Angeles to Wear Orange at the following locations on June 7-9:
