More than 5½ years after Hadiya Pendleton’s fatal shooting came to symbolize Chicago’s endemic violence, opening statements are set to take place Tuesday in the trial of two reputed gang members charged in the 15-year-old’s slaying.

Wear Orange in support of End Gun Violence #HadiyaPendleton #YouMatter #WearOrange #FifteenForever #DavidReynolds

Sisters (i.e., all people who identify as women and girls), I'm calling for a protective shield to be put around women of color. In public spaces, in intimate settings, in the workplace, in all places.
The severe abuse women have faced for centuries has created separation and self preservation (particularly, from those who have the resources to live a more protected life). If we shift our habits from self protection to communal strength, we will be stronger.
Seeing every female as a sister is the first step. All women around the world are connected by an unexplainable force. It's in our intuition, it's in our ability to create life, it's in our magnetism. It's 100 million times more powerful than racism, weapons and bigotry. Currently, we're disconnected and cannot see the magnitude of this force.
Let's reconnect and use our communal strength to end violence against the most targeted, women of color. In doing so, we end violence against all women and, therefore, all life.

Here is the NVI team at the UN representing the #wearorange Campaign!

As of May 25th, there have been 23 school shootings in the US in 2018 where someone was hurt or killed (CNN). That is why during the UN’s #RevCon3, we are promoting awareness about gun violence and the #wearorange campaign.

“The US makes up less than 5% of the world’s population but holds 31% of global mass shooters” (CNN). We can and need to do better to promote peace within our schools, our neighborhoods, and our country. Today, we #WearOrange to show our support for ending gun violence and beginning a new chapter in the US, a chapter free from fear of #gunviolence.

According to data collected by the Gun Violence Archive, at least 15,549 people were killed by #guns in the United States in 2017. This is why every year, thousands of people go on the streets wearing orange protesting for an end to #gunviolence and a more peaceful world.

When Hadiya Pendleton was shot and killed at the age of 15, a week after performing at President Obama’s 2nd inauguration in 2013, her friends and family called to #WearOrange in honor of her. Ever since then, orange became the defining color of the gun violence prevention movement in the United States and beyond.

An absolutely incredible event organized by @marchforourlivesstl yesterday. Parkland student activists, Mama Cat, Cori Bush, Sergeant Taylor, and Chicago student activists spoke on a panel in front of hundreds of people Sunday afternoon. I haven’t finished editing app the photos yet, but once I have, I will message people who want them the Dropbox link!

A young leader. A queen 👸🏾👸🏾👸🏾 --- Regrann from @common - I’m inspired by all the work @mad_liberator has been doing to stop gun violence. She started @projectorangetree when she lost her friend Hadiya Pendleton to gun violence in 2013 in Chicago. Hadiya would be turning 21 yrs old today. Thank You Nza for being a leader in this movement to save lives. So in the spirit of Hadiya , C mon y’all, let’s do better! - #regrann --- #HadiyaPendleton #Common #Music #LiveMusic #ShaunKing #EricReid #ColinKaepernick #NFL #KnowYourRights #KnowYourRightsCamp #DoingBigThings #BlackLivesMatter #BlackGirlsRock #BlackGirlMagic #BlackBoyJoy #BlackJoy #BlackExcellence #BlackGirlsWhoBlog #BlacksWhoBlog #TakeAKnee #TakeTheKnee #ImWithKap #ImWithEReid

THE #RACIAL AND #CLASS VALUE OF #TRAGEDY IN A NATION STRUCK BY GUN VIOLENCE

We need to talk about this now. I can’t even say we need to be better. I can only say we have to be better. It is far too late to assume things can be fixed at a later date. |
The number of shootings in this country have become far too large to be ignored. The shootings will only continue to increase with more victims everyday if we don’t do anything. |
Gun violence is beyond multi-faceted. It is correlated to gender, race, age, and beyond. But I want to speak about race. |
Gun violence is racial. It is not just a matter of school shooters being predominately white males. It is a matter of Americans refusing to acknowledge that we prioritize gun violence cases with predominately upper class white victims. |
Now don’t get me wrong, I believe we should prioritize every case of gun violence. But we have to talk about the elephant in the room. |
The media doesn’t speak about the rates of gun violence for inner city kids. The media doesn’t speak about the Black students struck by the Parkland shooting. This must change. |
