Join us on June 7-9th for Wear Orange, as we unite in our call to end gun violence and honor the more than 120 people who are shot and killed, and hundreds more who are wounded and traumatized, every day in our country. Read some of the stories of those affected by gun violence below.

I was a graduate student at Virginia Tech during the 2007 massacre. I believe that this event has shaped my life and made me so fearful that gun violence will hurt my children. I know that it can happen anywhere, at any time. We lost 32 fellow students that day, and the grief that I carry with me every day is palpable. I had nightmares for months following the attacks and cannot imagine the pain that families go through with the loss of a loved one. I do not understand how our country keeps allowing this to happen over and over again.
