"Wear Orange Day" Event Happening in Madison on Friday

This Friday is "Wear Orange Day," a nationwide event dedicated to raising awareness about gun violence through rallies and other calls to action. 

Coinciding with National Gun Violence Awareness Day, there are hundreds of "Wear Orange Days" happening across the country. Participants are encouraged to wear orange to show their solidarity and support for reforms to gun laws, to reduce gun violence across the U.S.

In Madison, the event and rally will take place at Galaxy Park, located at 132 Milky Way on the city's east side. Scheduled from 5 pm to 7 pm on Friday evening, the event is hosted by Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) and co-hosted by Moms Demand Action, Focused Interruption, and Dane County Human Services.

The rally will offer a range of activities, including food, music, and speeches from various community leaders. 

Join the Madison community at Galaxy Park this Friday evening to support this important cause. Your presence and participation help amplify the message that gun violence must be addressed with immediate and effective solutions.
