Here’s a look at some of the public figures who decided to Wear Orange.

Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner, wore an orange blouse during a campaign speech in California just days ahead of the state’s Tuesday primary.

Clinton has been a vocal advocate of gun reform. 

President Obama also urged his Twitter followers to "Wear Orange," but didn’t appear to take his own advice, as Breitbart points out.

They were joined by dozens of lawmakers and mayors from around the country.

Curry of the Golden State Warriors also got in on the action, wearing an orange headband on Thursday before his NBA Finals match-up with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Schumer, who has advocated for stronger background checks, was completely decked out in orange from head to toe in a picture she posted with her friends. 

Celebrities Kim Kardashian, Elizabeth Banks and Spike Lee also joined the Wear Orange movement.

More than 125 famous landmarks — including the Empire State Building and Niagara Falls — were also lit up in orange, according to the Wear Orange campaign, which tracked participation.
