    pro-President Obama organization will host a candlelight vigil against gun violence at Clackamas Town Center tonight beginning at 7 p.m.

    Organizing for Action, a group that grew out of President Obama's reelection campaign, will host the vigil. Members of two local gun violence prevention groups, Moms Demand Action and Ceasefire Oregon, are set to attend.

    The event is one of more than 120 events nationwide commemorating the National Day of Action to Reduce Gun Violence, an effort launched at the White House on Thursday by President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and mothers directly impacted by gun violence.

    "Oregonians have not forgotten the tragic shootings at Clackamas Town Center in December, and we are tired of inaction in Washington D.C. more than three months after the fact," said Helen Nolen of Organizing for Action in a press release. "The time for common-sense restrictions on gun purchases and ammunition is now."

    Organizing for Action is a nonprofit organization "established to support President Obama in achieving enactment of the national agenda Americans voted for on Election Day 2012," according to a press release.

    The vigil will run from 7 to 8 p.m. on the sidewalk in front of Macaroni Grill on Sunnyside Road.
