Public Memorial Tuesday for Christopher Stevens

-Bay City News

A large public memorial is being held at San Francisco City Hall this afternoon for Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya who was killed in an attack last month.

Stevens, 52, a Bay Area native, died along with three other Americans in the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Today's 4:30 p.m. memorial is expected to draw numerous dignitaries, including San Francisco
Mayor Ed Lee, who will give opening remarks.

Stevens graduated from Piedmont High School in 1978 and attended the University of California at Berkeley, where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in history. He received his law degree from UC Hastings College of the Law in 1989.

Stevens' family said on a website set up to honor him, www.rememberingchrisstevens.com, that another memorial is planned in Washington, D.C., later this fall.

In lieu of bringing flowers, those attending today's memorial can make a donation through the website to the J. Christopher Stevens Fund to help build bridges between the U.S. and the Middle East.
