A website called #WeAreOrlando.org has been set up in an attempt to organize and publicize vigils being held around the United States tonight (and Monday, so far) that will honor those killed in last night's shooting at gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando.

Here are some of the vigils in Southern California that have been announced thus far. If you're planning one, or know someone who is, you can direct them to the link above so they can submit the proper information.

In addition to the vigils above, the L.A. Times has also compiled a few more. A prayer service and vigil, sponsored by the L.A. chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Baitul Hameed Mosque at 11941 Ramona Ave. in Chino.

Participants are asked to wear orange.
