Members of the Queens Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., canvassed the streets of Queens distributing flyers in orange tees on National Gun Violence Day June 2, 2017.
Wearing the color orange in June is more than just a bold fashion statement.
This vibrant color that demands to be seen is the color used to represent National Gun Violence Awareness Month. There are millions of Americans who want to end gun violence in America. As a tribute to those who lost their lives or were victims of senseless gun violence, the color orange is worn to demand being seen and heard.
The ladies delivered a powerful message to the community: Please help us to keep our communities safe. Please help us to keep our nation safe. Get involved by calling your legislators. We need gun violence reform. We need it now!
