Team Levine to ‘wear orange’ this weekend

Philip Levine

Philip Levine’s campaign for Governor said Friday that it will spend the weekend participating in a slew of events for National Gun Violence Day.

Each of the events is part of Everytown for Gun Safety’s national “Wear Orange” initiative, which includes hundreds of events nationwide.

Participants are encouraged to post pictures of themselves wearing orange clothing with the hashtag #WearOrange and “show everyone who you’re wearing orange for and why you’re committed to ending gun violence in America.”

Levine will be attending the Wear Orange event in the Miami Design District at noon on Saturday, while the remainder of the 15 events listed by the campaign will have Team Levine supporters, volunteers, and organizers on hand to speak to attendees about common-sense gun reforms.

Levine, a former two-term mayor of Miami Beach, is one of four major Democrats running for the party nomination. He faces former Congresswoman Gwen Graham, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and Orlando-area businessman Chris King in the Democratic Primary.
