The contest to select California’s next governor is on. 

While the statewide primary election isn’t until June, KPCC has already connected with the major gubernatorial candidates and community members about the issues that matter most to them. That conversation continues on January 13, when KPCC’s Mary Plummer will join ABC7’s Mark Brown for a gubernatorial town hall presented by The Empowerment Congress and Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas in collaboration with the USC Dornsife Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics.

To be held at USC’s Bovard Auditorium, the town hall is part of the 26th annual Empowerment Congress Summit and will feature a Festival of Democracy with the major candidates, the KPCC In Person team, resource tables, an art exhibition, a community forum and complimentary lunch.

The participating gubernatorial candidates are Travis Allen, John Chiang, John Cox, Delaine Eastin, Gavin Newsom and Antonio Villaraigosa.

Attendance is free, but RSVPs are required. Admission will be based on a first-come, first-admitted basis.

8 am – Check-in
9 am – Gubernatorial Town Hall
10:30 am – Festival of Democracy, including a post town hall community response, resource tables, entertainment and lunch
