FRESNO, California (KSEE/KGPE) – Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders is scheduled for an event in Fresno on Thursday, according to his website.

“Town Hall in Fresno with Bernie Sanders” is listed on Sanders’ website.

The event is at the Veterans Peace Memorial Lawn at Fresno City College.

Fresno City College confirmed that the Sanders campaign was renting out space for the event, but the event is not sponsored by the college.

Doors open at 6 p.m., and the event is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

According to the campaign, the trip is focused on engaging young and Latinx voters — a demographic reflected in the Bernie 2020 California leadership, which includes Rafael Návar, State Director; Shelli Faustian Jackson, Deputy State Director; and Joselin Garcia, California Student Organizing Director.
