National Gun Violence Awareness Day Is June 1st
Gun violence is an epidemic that kills 33,000 people in this country every year, and takes 90 lives every single day. Many more Americans are shot and survive to cope with traumatic injuries the rest of their lives. On June 1st - Gun Violence Awareness Day – we wear orange to raise awareness about this epidemic and honor the victims and survivors.The Brady Center and Campaign is fighting for the safer America we all want and deserve – an America where guns kill or injure fewer people each year. If you, too, have had ENOUGH of gun violence in America, I encourage you to join me and millions across the country in taking action and #WEARORANGE today.
