Wear Orange for Gun Violence Awareness

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Created by Chicago teens who wanted to honor the lives of gun violence and survivors, the "Wear Orange" campaign has spread nationwide.

In Little Rock, the group "Moms Demand Action" hosted a Wear Orange picnic ar Dunbar Garden.

Eve Jorgensen remarked from the picnic, "We know 96 Americans are shot and killed every day, and twice that many people are injured by gun violence. And so, we're just here to remember them and to pledge to take action."

If you happen to travel on or around the Arkansas River Bridges this weekend, you may notice they have also turned orange in solidarity with the cause.

More than 500 groups nationwide are taking part in this weekend's movement.
