WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) People across the nation, including right here in Greater Lafayette are wearing orange for gun violence awareness this weekend.
The Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America Indiana Chapter hosted a community event at Tapawingo Park.
On Saturday afternoon, multiple community activism leaders were dressed in orange to share a message of alliance with the Moms Demand Action group.
The organization wears orange in reference to hunters who wear the color to avoid being shot while hunting.
Kathy Parker is the local lead for Moms Demand Action. She said those represented in Moms Demand Action don't just have one particular look or political view.
“Both women and men, gun owners and non-gun owners of every gender, gender identity, race, creed, everything just committed to ending gun violence,” said Parker.
