Mark your calendars: Maryland Matters will be co-sponsoring a forum for leading U.S. Senate candidates on the evening of Tuesday, April 2 at Goucher College in Towson.

The Maryland League of Conservation Voters Education Fund is the primary sponsor of the event, and other nonprofits are expected to sign on. The Sarah T. Hughes Center for Politics at Goucher College is serving as the host. The event will be live-streamed and is also open to all for in-person attendance.

The candidates will primarily be asked to address issues related to climate and the environment, as well as democracy and civic engagement — with an emphasis on young voters.

So far, the top Democratic contenders for the open Senate seat, Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks and U.S. Rep. David Trone, have committed to attend. Former Gov. Larry Hogan (R) has been invited, but has yet to commit to attending.

The event organizers sent out invitations to candidates who are polling at 15% or better in the race.

The candidates will not share the stage together. Instead, they will each speak for half an hour, taking questions from representatives from Maryland LCV, Maryland Matters and Goucher students.

The event will run from 6:30-8:30 p.m., and will be held at the Hyman Forum of the Athenaeum at Goucher College. Doors will open at 6 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
