June is a busy month for the LWV CVA starting with:

WEAR ORANGE JUNE 2, 3 AND 4!  June is National Gun Violence Awareness Month. Every day, more than 300 people are directly impacted by gun violence in the United States (Brady May 2023).  To bring awareness to this senseless violence June 2, 3 and 4 are designated as WEAR ORANGE DAYS.  Wearing orange honors Hadiya Pendleton and all those impacted by gun violence.  Hadiya performed with her high school majorette squad at President Obama’s second inaugural parade.  Just one week later she was shot and killed in Chicago.  Hadiya’s friends asked others to wear orange to raise awareness about gun violence.

A Charlottesville Wear Orange Gun Violence Awareness Community Event will be held June 3 from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Mt. Zion First African Baptist Church sponsored by The Charlottesville/Albemarle Moms Demand Action, the B.U.C.K Squad and other community partners to honor victims and survivors of gun violence.  Click here for more information.
