On June 2, the city will be illuminated orange, the halls will be draped with orange cloth and city officials will be wearing orange in support of the second annual National Gun Awareness Day. After Chicago teenager Hadiya Pendleton was shot and killed in the midst of gang gunfire in 2013, teenagers started the day to create awareness for gun safety. June 2 would have been Pendleton’s 18th birthday.
