National Gun Violence Awareness Day

Your DGB for today is to prepare to observe National Gun Violence Awareness Day tomorrow, June 2nd.

In the United States, gun violence kills nearly 100 people every single day, which is beyond unacceptable and certainly preventable. Tomorrow, we reject the culture of gun violence and every tragedy that comes with it.

You’ll observe the day in at least one of the following ways:

Wear the color orange and share your photos on social media using the hashtag #WearOrange, or post them directly to this site by scrolling to the bottom of the page.

Attend a local event near you.

Connect with event sponsors Moms Demand Action, @MomsDemand and Everytown, @Everytown.

We leave you with this Bob Dylan quote, which comes to mind with each senseless loss and lack of subsequent action to prevent further gun violence:


Yes, and how many times must a man look up

Before he can see the sky

Yes, and how many ears must one man have

Before he can hear people cry

Yes, and how many deaths will it take till he knows

That too many people have died

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind

The answer is blowin’ in the wind
