HOW TO SUPPORT MARYLANDERS TO PREVENT GUN VIOLENCE AWARENESS DAY? WEAR ORANGE! (652 hits)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE!

Four years ago, Hadiya Pendleton had just finished her final exams when she was shot in the back while standing with friends in a Chicago park. Two weeks earlier, this bright and beautiful young woman had performed in President Obama's 2nd inaugural celebration. Hadiya was just 15 when she died from gun violence. Like so many Americans, she was taken from her loved ones far too soon.

Hadiya's friends and family decided to honor her death with action, and decided to wear orange -- the color that hunters wear in the woods for safety -- to raise awareness and prevent future senseless gun deaths. Their action has inspired a national movement, with millions of Americans and people around the world wearing orange for National Gun Violence Awareness Day each June.

This year, we are partnering with Mothers of Murdered Sons and Daughters and our local Moms Demand Action chapter to create a Wear Orange event in Baltimore that will honor Hadiya and all the lives taken by gunfire across the state. There will be food, drinks, and music! Grab your favorite orange outfit and join us!
