U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren will host an open house at Springfield Technical Community College Friday, March 9, to greet voters, answer questions and discuss her work “standing up for working families of Massachusetts against powerful corporate interests,” according to a statement.

She also plans to discuss how “she’s holding the Trump Administration accountable and fighting for Massachusetts families in the Senate,” according to the event posting on her website. The website states that the open house will also serve as an opportunity for members of the public to meet Sen. Warren’s team and learn how to get involved in 2018.

The open house will take place at Springfield Technical Community College’s Scibelli Hall at 1:30 p.m. at 1 Armory Square, Building 2, in Springfield. Doors will open at 1 p.m. and the event is free and open to the public.

Admission is first come, first served, and signs and posters will not be allowed inside the event, according to Warren’s website.

Warren, whose six-year term in the Senate ends this year, fueled rumors of a 2020 presidential campaign on Wednesday, when she announced at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser dinner in Washington D.C. that she has donated $5,000 to every state Democratic Party in the country.

“I want a Democratic Party strong enough to compete for every vote, in every race, at every level, in every state, in every election — and I’m willing to do my part to help make that happen,” Warren said at the dinner, according to Politico.

Attendees are asked to RSVP to the Springfield open house at Sen. Warren’s website: http://elizabethwarren.com/2018springfieldopenhouse.
