NORTHAMPTON — “Defending democracy” will be the topic of the day Tuesday when two congressional leaders meet at First Churches of Northampton.

U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Worcester, is hosting U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Maryland, for a town hall conversation.

Raskin is a former constitutional law professor who led Democrats’ second effort to impeach former president Donald Trump after the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Raskin is now part of the committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection, which McGovern’s office said gives him “a unique perspective of the challenges facing our democracy and the role each of us have in protecting it.”

The event begins Tuesday at 6 p.m. at First Churches of Northampton, at 129 Main St. The event is free and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
