Third Annual National Gun Violence Awareness Day! Stand Up! Wear Orange! Be Counted!

Later this week, hundreds of events are scheduled around the country to bring awareness to the tragedy of gun violence.  Hundreds of thousands of orange shirts are expected to show support for reasonable gun control measures that will reduce the epidemic of gun violence. This is the third annual “Wear Orange” Campaign inspired by Chicago teens who refused to be silent in the face of daily gun violence. https://wearorange.org

And today, another example of tragic gun violence hits a community in Mississippi, with eight dead including a Sheriff’s Deputy.  https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/may/28/eight-dead-suspect-custody-mississippi-shooting?utm_source=esp&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=GU+Today+USA+-+Collections+2017&utm_term=228125&subid=22517821&CMP=GT_US_collection
