we can end gun violence

National Gun Violence Awareness Day asks everyone who believes we can do more to save American lives from gun violence to do one simple thing: Wear Orange.

Originating in hunting culture, Wear Orange acknowledges that America has a proud heritage of responsible gun ownership and reflects the value of human life. The 5th National Gun Violence Awareness Day on June 7, 2019, will be the largest-ever show of support for this issue. In greater numbers than ever before, Americans will come together to show that we are united in our goal of ending gun violence.
