Following the 2013 murder of Hadiya Pendleton in Chicago at the age of 18, her family asked that activists wear orange to raise awareness of gun violence. In subsequent years orange became the color of National Gun Violence Awareness Day in June, and is widely recognized as the color of the gun control movement. In particular the nonprofit group Everytown for Gun Safety sells buttons, shirts, and stickers with the slogan "wear orange" to finance their work towards building awareness and passing legislation to regulate gun sales and use in America.
