New Broad-Based Coalition Announces June 2 as First-Ever National Gun Violence Awareness Day and Calls on Americans Nationwide to 'Wear Orange'

NEW YORK, NY - Today a broad coalition of leading organizations, cultural influencers, community members and activists unveiled “Wear Orange” (www.wearorange.org), a new campaign that will amplify existing efforts to reduce gun violence in America. To help honor the 88 Americans whose lives are cut short by gun violence every day -- and the countless survivors whose lives are forever altered by shootings each year -- the coalition has designated June 2, 2015 as the first annual National Gun Violence Awareness Day.
