The Domestic Policy of the presidential candidates is the main focus of a discussion on Central Michigan University’s campus Wednesday at 7pm.

The Speak Up Speak Out forum will host political science professors and students as panelists.

They’ll discuss the positions of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on issues of domestic policy.

Elizabeth Bradshaw is the facilitator of the event. She said student panelists decided to focus on three topics.

“Together we kind of brainstormed a few different ideas, and the three main topics we came up with are crime and criminal justice reform, healing the racial divide in this country and then jobs in the economy.”

Bradshaw said the event is open to community members as well as students.

“I think that these are huge issues, the domestic issues really affect us first and foremost, these issues I think are really big in the media right now, they’re issues that we’ve been talking about ,so we wanted to hear what students have to say.”

It’s scheduled for Wednesday at 7pm in the Bovee University Center’s Auditorum on CMU’s campus.
