The event will take place on Oct. 24 in Des Moines, Iowa.

LULAC will also be working to identify and register Hispanic voters in the state to increase turnout for the Iowa caucuses and general election, the statement said. 

Sanders, Castro and Gabbard are among the more than a dozen candidates vying for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. All three have qualified for the Oct. 15 Democratic debate.
