In addition to touching on the state of the 2016 presidential race the conversation will focus on the issues that matter to the rising American mainstream, which is more diverse than ever before. Ramos and Menendez will be joined in the questioning the candidates by a range of FUSION contributors including Correspondents Dan Lieberman, Kimberly Brooks, Alaa Basatneh, Natasha del Toro, Danny Rivero, Anna Sterling and Environmental Correspondent Nico Ibarguen, among others. They will touch on topics that include criminal justice, immigration reform, LGBT rights, guns, climate change, income inequality among others.

FUSION has a standing invitation to Democratic, Republican, and Green Party candidates for interviews. In February, Mr. Trump said he would sit down with FUSION and Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, but has not agreed to schedule that interview to-date. Secretary Clinton participated in the Iowa Brown and Black Forum hosted by FUSION in January.
