Wear Orange 2024

In 2024, the 10th National Gun Violence Awareness Day will fall on June 7, the first Friday of the month.
That will kick off Wear Orange Weekend on June 7-9, which will feature virtual and in-person events across the nation – advocates for gun violence prevention will come together to wear orange and demand a change.

The SMOS Gun Sense: For the Common Good team invites you to wear your orange shirts to honor survivors and victims of gun violence and call for a future free from this crisis.   Wear orange to raise awareness and show your concern!  Wear orange to Mass to pray for all of us affected.

Gun Sense has created a unique SMOS-branded orange shirt to wear for this occasion. Please click the link below to order.
