“Wear Orange” on National Gun Violence Awareness Day – June 2nd, 2015

WearOrange3Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, our two United States Senators from Connecticut, are participating in this upcoming campaign to “Wear Orange” on June 2nd, 2015 for the inaugural “National Gun Violence Awareness Day”.

Wear Orange is a new campaign that amplifies existing efforts to reduce gun violence in America and helps honor the 88 Americans whose lives are cut short by gun violence every day.

Anyone can join the Wear Orange campaign by visiting wearorange.org and using the website’s pledge tool to change their social media profile picture or share why they’ll be #WearingOrange on June 2, the first-ever National Gun Violence Awareness Day.
