Youth Lead Hope Chasers Wear Orange Event to Honor Young People Who Have Lost Their Lives due to gun violence


Norfolk the young people connected to Teens With a Purpose and the Safe Passage Safety Coalition have joined hands to create an event to celebrate the lives of other young people who are no longer with us but are gone due to gun violence and for all the families impacted by gun violence.

They’re calling it Hope Chasers Wear Orange (HCWO)

 It is their hope that these deaths are not in vain and that their efforts will comfort the families, the community and spark change that helps to end gun violence.

HCWO is a joyful memorial filled with poetry and music and dance, art creation & healing circles all taking place inside of the beautiful oasis called Purpose Park 801 Church Street

Please join Teens With a Purpose, students demand action and the showstoppers today noon til 2pm

This Youth lead Event is a family affair, all are welcome.
