Several memorials are planned Wednesday for the victims of the shooting rampage in Tucson that killed six people and wounded 13 others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

On Wednesday evening, President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will attend a public memorial service in Tucson entitled “Together We Thrive: Tucson and America.” The president will address the gathering and the nation in the live televised event at the University of Arizona. Preliminary details on the event are available here.

The White House said President Obama would meet privately with the victims’ families before the service
