Thursday, South Warren Street in downtown Trenton began “turning orange.”
In 2013, Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old Black girl from Chicago, Illinois, was shot in the back and killed while standing with friends inside a park after taking her final exams only one week after performing at events for President Barack Obama’s second inauguration.
Orange is the color that Hadiya Pendleton’s friends wore in her honor. Since then orange has been the defining color of the gun violence prevention movement.
Teska Frisby, the Mercer County lead for Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, went door-to-door at the local businesses asking if they would put orange signs in their windows to support their cause. Assisted by Moms Demand Action volunteer Sarah Cuprzinski, the two also tied orange bows around trees on the historic business-lined avenue.
“Gun violence is paralyzingly our country,” said Frisby. “We can’t move from one day to the next without, hearing about some type of shooting.”
Last year, Trenton recorded an all-time high murder rate.
Frisby, who is married to Mercer County Freeholder Chairman Samuel Frisby (also CEO at YMCA of Trenton), has personal reasons for her involvement in the movement. “I have 3 amazing young Black teenage boys in my home and I need to have the world receive them with the love and respect that EVERY young person should receive.”
Friday’s effort was headquarted at the Trenton Starbucks on the corner of South Warren and East Front Street where most employees were attired in orange.
Frisby adds, “We will be in Cadwalader Heights on Saturday at 10 a.m. turning 3 communities orange, with decorations, tree ribbons and banners.

Syracuse, on the other hand, is second to last in the country with 31.32 infractions per matchup. The Wildcats were also handed eight yellow cards against the Orange, an oddity for a team that averaged 2.2 yellow cards a game.
While the Orange remained true to its aggressive style of play, Syracuse also forced the Wildcats to play a looser, rougher style, which may have cost Northwestern a spot in the national championship.

SANTA ANA (CBSLA) – Orange County Friday reported 55 new COVID-19 infections, as hospitalization rates maintain some of the lowest numbers since the first couple of months of the pandemic.
Hospitalizations inched up from 61 on Thursday to 62 on Friday, but the number of intensive care unit patients decreased from 18 to 14.
Orange County CEO Frank Kim said that all of the county’s COVID-19 metrics are “down about a tenth of a point. It’s a progression of what we’ve seen over the last several weeks.”
It is especially encouraging as more of the county’s economy reopens in the least-restrictive yellow tier, Kim said.
“The numbers are generally looking amazing,” Andrew Noymer, a UC Irvine professor of population health and disease prevention, told City News Service on Thursday.
“It’s cyclical, but the cycles are trending downward,” Noymer said of hospitalizations and ICU numbers.
Kim was concerned that the Cal OSHA proposed guidelines for after June 15, when the state shuts down its tiered system and lifts most restrictions don’t appear to change much.
“Cal OSHA posted draft workplace standards for Covid and there’s not much different from what we currently have and I’m worried about that,” Kim said.
“I worry about confusion in the community,” Kim said. “Most people have a sense that on June 15 most things will go back to normal, but for employers, in the workplace it doesn’t look like much has changed.”
The draft proposal must be posted for five days while the public weighs in and then the state agency’s board will vote on it, Kim said.
“I may not be able to bring all of my employees back, so it will not look the way they think it will,” Kim said.
The new infections reported Friday increased the county’s cumulative case number to 255,164. Three additional fatalities were reported, raising the cumulative death toll to 5,059.
One death occurred in March, raising the death toll in that month to 182.
Two other fatalities were reported in December, boosting the death toll in the second deadliest month of the pandemic to 938.
The death toll so far this month stands at five, and 41 for last month.
The death toll for February is 581. The death toll in January, the deadliest month in the pandemic, is 1,546.
Another 9,702 COVID-19 tests were reported Friday, bringing the county’s total to 3,906,305.
