Former Democratic presidential nominee Bernie Sanders will be returning to Arizona to speak at the Mesa Amphitheatre on April 21, according to the Democratic National Committee.  

Sanders is holding a rally with DNC chairman Tom Perez in Mesa to meet with Democrats and "talk about how we're building a stronger, grassroots Democratic Party that can take on Trump, fight for our values, and win elections." 

Sanders is touring the nation as a part of a "Come Together and Fight Back" tour that's designed to create a stronger Democratic party in the wake of last year's losses to Republicans. 

Sanders and Perez will tout the party's goal of raising the minimum wage to $15 and hour, bringing wage equality to women and boosting infrastructure spending.

The rally will start at 7 p.m. and doors will open at 5:30 p.m.  

The event is free and open to the public. Those interested in going can RSVP online

Organizers say admission is first come, first served.
