Wear Orange Day (Gun Violence Awareness Day)
June 7 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Morristown Wear Orange Day: June 7, 2019
Wear Orange Day, or Gun Violence Awareness Day, will be held on June 7th in Morristown, NJ. Please join Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, as we turn South Street orange, in honor of the 100 lives cut short by gun violence every day.
Wear Orange was started after Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year old girl from Chicago, who was shot and killed. Hadiya was killed just one week after performing at President Obama’s second inaugural parade in 2013. Her family and friends decided to wear orange in honor of her life and legacy. Since then, orange has become the defining color in the gun violence prevention movement.
The “Wear Orange” movement truly gains momentum when gun sense activists come together to fight for a future free from devastating, daily gun violence. Wear Orange weekend gives us the opportunity to show the country just how powerful our movement is when we unite!
Together, we will “paint” South Street orange, by decorating the steps of Town Hall orange, tying orange ribbons around lamp posts, changing church spotlights to orange and having store owners hang Wear Orange placards in their storefront windows.
Please share this important and fun event with friends and family.
