#WearOrange for Gun Violence Awareness

Orange has been the color of gun violence awareness after Haydia Pendleton was tragically shot in 2013 when she was only 15 years old. Help us spread the message that gun violence is a health crisis that takes over 100 lives every day.

 

We grieve with the Uvalde community for the 19 children and 2 teachers murdered in their school. We choose to Honor with Action! Here are some ways to support  #WearOrange:
