WEAR ORANGE VOTER REGISTRATION TRAINING (IRVINE)
June 2 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Gun violence is an epidemic in the United States, with over 100 people killed by gun violence every day.
Every year, we come together to fight for a future free from gun violence. Wear Orange Weekend is an opportunity for us to show the country just how powerful we are.
Orange is the color that Hadiya Pendleton’s friends wore in her honor when she was shot and killed in Chicago at the age of 15 — just one week after performing at President Obama’s 2nd inaugural parade in 2013. After her death, they asked us to stand up, speak out, and Wear Orange to raise awareness about gun violence. Since then orange has been the defining color of the gun violence prevention movement.
June 2nd would be Hadiya’s 21st birthday. This year, we will honor her with action by hosting a Voter Registration Training. When we empower people to vote, we all benefit. Registering our neighbors in OC will ensure that everyone has a voice.
We hope you’ll all join us for this important training and be sure to WEAR ORANGE!
