National Gun Violence Awareness Day Observed at Washington National Cathedral

  • Washington National Cathedral 3101 Wisconsin Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20016 United States (map)

Join with others outside—at the west end of the Cathedral—for this quiet, respectful and powerful event at which you can remember and honor those who have died and reflect on the reason why the Cathedral and so many other buildings and people across the country are wearing orange. 

The Bourdon (funeral) Bell will ring 109 times at 9 pm in memory of Americans who die daily from gunfire.
