LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola signed a proclamation declaring June 2 the 2nd annual National Gun Violence Awareness Day.
“We're amplifying, the national coalition of organizations has designated June 2, 2017 as the 2nd annual National Gun Violence Awareness Day upon which supporters are encouraged to wear the color orange to raise awareness of those issues of gun violence and honor those who've been victims,” said Mayor Stodola.
If you saw a lot of people wearing orange Friday, that's why. It's the 2nd annual National Gun Violence Awareness Day, when people across the county come together to remember victims of gun violence, and make an effort to curb violence in our communities.
Not only did the city issue a proclamation, but they also ordered gun locks to hand out to make everyone safer.
