The country is lighting up in orange on Friday in honor of national Gun Violence Awareness Day.
The day was inspired by the death of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, who was shot and killed in Chicago in 2013. People are encouraged to wear orange to honor those who have been injured or killed from gun violence.
Here are some of the celebrities and elected officials who are showing their support by wearing orange. For more information on how to donate to the cause visit www.wearorange.org
