All Saints Wears Orange Today

The All Saints Church staff and vestry commends the City of Pasadena for commemorating today as National Gun Violence Awareness Day … AKA #WearingOrange Day. Just as hunters wear orange in the woods to protect themselves and others from gunfire so will we: while also expressing our support for common sense gun solutions that will save lives and make our community safe and healthy for all people.

To support this important witness, All Saints members are encouraged to [1] wear orange and [2] take and post your picture with the hashtags #WearOrange #AllSaintsWearsOrange on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to make our voices heard.

Then plan to stop at the Action Table on Sunday, June 4 to take action in support of AB 785 – The Disarm Hate Act. This bill would prohibit those convicted of a hate crime involving the use or threatened use of force from possessing or acquiring firearms within 10 years of conviction.

Partners in this National Gun Violence Awareness Day include: The Brady Campaign; Mayor’s Against Illegal Guns; Moms Demand Action; Newtown Action Alliance; Sandy Hook Promise; Women Against Gun Violence; the YWCA and our own Bishops Against Gun Violence.
