Following the success of the Time's Up pin, which attendees of the Golden Globes wore to raise awareness of women affected by sexual assault and harassment in any industry, people are choosing to wear a different pin to the Oscars. And the "Wear Orange" American Flag pins stand for an extremely important cause.
From the organization Everytown for Gun Safety, the "Wear Orange" pins have been created to "honor those who have been killed and to inspire action to end gun violence." Following the devastating school shooting in Parkland, Florida last month, celebrities are opting to give Everytown for Gun Safety a voice on the red carpet, to encourage crucial discussions about gun control.
The organization's website says, "We're in every state, every community, and every town and you can Expect Us on the front lines of every fight—whether political, electoral, or cultural—to make our country safer from gun violence."

Celebrities have already been donating to March for Our Lives, the march set up by Parkland students following the tragic shooting at their high school.
Oprah announced on Twitter that she will be donating $500,000 to the march, matching George and Amal Clooney's donation.
Oprah wrote, "George and Amal, I couldn’t agree with you more. I am joining forces with you and will match your $500,000 donation to 'March For Our Lives.' These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard."
