The Washington Mystics Wear Orange for the black and brown people who are disproportionately killed as a result of gun violence that is perpetuated by the systemic racism that exists in America. We stand with and support all who are protesting and demonstrating for a better tomorrow.

On Friday, June 5, National Gun Violence Awareness Day, please join us in honoring the victims and survivors of gun violence while we demand change at the local and federal level.
