National Gun 
Day June 3

 The Pasadena City Council

issued a proclamation declaring

June 3 “National Gun Violence 

Awareness Day” in Pasadena.

Now in its eighth year, the day

honors and remembers victims 

and survivors of gun violence

and supports efforts to prevent

gun violence.

 The proclamation was be

received by San Gabriel Valley

Moms Demand Action, a 

local grassroots organization

working to reduce gun violence.

The proclamation reads that

gun violence “touches every

segment of our society and

impacts people of all ages; it

increases the probability of 

death in incidents of domestic 

violence; raises the likelihood

of fatalities by those who 

intend to injure others, and 

among those who attempt

suicide; it places children and

young people at increased risk

of physical harm and injury;

and disproportionately affects

communities of color.” The 

proclamation concludes by

urging all citizens, businesses,

and organizations to work 

collaboratively to reduce gun

violence in our community.

 National Gun Violence 

Awareness Day kicks off Wear

Orange Weekend (June 3-5), an

event held annually in honor of

Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year

old who was shot and killed in 

Chicago in 2013, just one week

after performing at President

Obama’s second inauguration

parade. Orange is the color that

Hadiya’s friends wore in her

honor and is worn throughout

the nation to raise awareness 

about gun violence.

 The City of Pasadena 

encourages community

members to wear orange June

3-5 in support of the gun

violence prevention movement

and to share photos on social

media using the hashtag 


 A neighborhood peace walk

will be held on Saturday, June
