====================================================

On June 2nd and 3rd, thousands of Americans wear orange to send the powerful message that there is more we can do to end gun violence. But the work doesn’t end there. Everytown and our partner organizations continue to do life-saving work so that we can get closer to realizing a future free of gun violence. We wore orange to be seen, now demand that we will be heard.
