JUNE 2 IS WEAR ORANGE DAY in honor of National Gun Violence Awareness Day. Please join Episcopal Peace Fellowship along with a large coalition of gun violence prevention groups - by wearing orange on this day.
The Wear Orange Campaign was inspired by friends of Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old Chicago student killed by gunfire just days after dancing in President Obama's Inaugural Parade. Hadiya's friends decided to honor her life by wearing orange — the color hunters wear in the woods to protect themselves and others. The color orange has become the symbol of gun safety and of the value of human life.
By wearing orange on June 2, 2017, we are pledging to honor those Americans killed and injured by gun violence, help keep firearms out of dangerous hands, practice responsible gun ownership, and most importantly, promising to do our part to help end gun violence.
