Pueblo Memorial Hall is hosting a memorial service for victims of the 2016 massacre of nine people at a community center in Puebla.
The community center is the first of its kind in the nation and the first facility dedicated to honoring the victims of a mass shooting.
The event will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.t. in the Pueblos Memorial Hall.
PuebloS memorial hall is located at 821 S. Pinto Ave.
Pueblos is about two hours south of Phoenix and about 30 minutes north of Denver.
The city of Phoenix has been on the forefront of the efforts to prevent gun violence, and is working closely with Puebloes memorial hall to host the memorial service.
“It’s a great opportunity to remember the victims and to remember those who lost their lives,” Mayor Greg Stanton said.
“The outpouring of support and love for our city has been phenomenal.”
Pueblo has been designated a site of remembrance by the National Park Service and the National Rifle Association.
In November, Pueblois city council passed an ordinance requiring all of its businesses to post a memorial notice in their windows.
It also prohibits the display of firearms in city parks, public libraries, restaurants and on city property.
Puerto Rico has not designated a memorial to its victims of mass shootings.
The island is not included in the national effort.
