Baltimore police chaplain: I will ‘Wear Orange’ this weekend to stop gun violence and honor my slain son

June 4, 2021

This weekend is the seventh annual Wear Orange weekend, when Americans come together to demand a future free from gun violence. We wear orange to honor those taken and wounded by guns and call for an end to this senseless violence. Wear Orange was started by Chicago youth to honor Hadiya Pendleton, who was killed one week after her high school band marched in President Obama’s second inaugural parade. After her death, her friends asked us to speak out and wear the color orange to raise awareness about gun violence.
