BOSTON (AP) — The state’s two Democratic U.S. senators are hosting town hall meetings open to the public.

On Sunday, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is planning her first town hall of the year at Malden High School, with doors opening at noon.

Warren says she’ll field questions from the audience and plans discuss what she called her work “standing up for working families of Massachusetts against powerful corporate interests.” She held 17 town halls last year.

Later Sunday, Sen. Edward Markey is hosting a public town hall at Amherst-Pelham Regional Middle School in Amherst.

Markey says he’s planning to discuss the latest efforts in the U.S. Senate on immigration, tax reform, the opioid crisis, health care, and climate change.

Markey also plans to take questions from the audience. Doors open at 5 p.m.
