Presidents' Day Vigil Planned for Shooting Victims (Photo) - 02/19/18

PHOTO OPP: 7 PM at Tualatin HS

More than 200 students and families will gather tonight at Tualatin High School at 7:00 PM to remember those killed and wounded in the recent school shooting that took 17 lives.

The vigil is being organized by Becky Chamseddine, a parent in the school district, to "inspire students and families to take action."

Using the hashtag #Mommabearisdone, Chamseddine posted a notice just 24 hours ago and created a Facebook event, Vigil - A Demand for Change. Since then, students, teachers, and parents have been inviting friends through social media. Current estimates are that more than 200 will attend tonight's vigil.

There are several speakers scheduled, including student representatives from both Tigard High School and Tualatin High School, teachers, and a local pastor.

Organizers hope that tonight's gathering will be the catalyst for real change. Moms Demand Action, an organization being created by Chamseddine, will encourage students and adults to "get active, register to vote, and use their voices to urge lawmakers to create common sense solutions to gun violence."
