Hadiya Pendleton's friends asked that we #wearorange after she was shot and killed at age 15. She would have been 20 today and this is truly the least we can do to honor her memory and the memories of all the lives we lose to senseless acts of gun violence. Wear orange as a reminder throughout the day -to yourselves and others- to use your voice to speak out against lax gun laws and to be of service to those who have been affected by these unimaginable losses. @everytown
