Summer Institute Supports Gun Violence Awareness Day

Wear Orange GroupJune 2, 2015 marked the first National Gun Violence Awareness Day, where the country was asked to wear orange to honor all those lives who have been taken or injured by gun violence. This day marked a small moment in time where Americans came together to stand up for a world where people can live a life free from gun violence. Wearing orange symbolized the value of human lives and it is the color that hunters wear to keep safe.

Participants at the 14th Annual International Nonviolence Summer Institute wore bright orange Summer Institute tee shirts, hopeful that this day will mark a turning point in the ongoing argument about guns.
