Wear Orange originated on June 2, 2015 -- what would have been Hadiya Pendleton’s 18th birthday. Orange is the color that Hadiya Pendleton’s friends wore in her honor after she was shot and killed in Chicago at the age of 15 in 2013.

In 2020, the number of people killed by gun violence exceeded 40,000 – the highest rate of gun deaths in two decades. But as gun violence has grown, so too has the movement to stop it.

The Wear Orange campaign asks everyone in America who wants to save lives from gun violence to do one simple thing on June 4, National Gun Violence Awareness Day: Wear Orange.

Gun violence is a horrendous heinous act! A lawful deterrence is needed against those who should never be able to care a firearm. Also the crimes associated with gun violence need harsh penalties like life in jail with no parole or a death sentence! Punishing lawful gun owners who never broke a law outside a speeding or parking ticket. Most lawful gun owners would sooner protect you or people in general in need rather than let a body count build up. That could mean saving you, a friend or family member. Punishing lawful gun owners and taking away their firearms and 2nd amendment rights is not the right way to go!
