    AY 23: Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders speaks at a campaign rally at Lincoln Park on May 23, 2016 in East Los Angeles, California. Sanders is campaigning ahead of the June 7 California primary.

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will be headed back to the East Bay this week, making a stop at a church in Oakland. 

    The senator, who has been canvassing the Bay Area in hopes of snagging a victory in California's June 7 primary, will be at the Allen Temple Baptist Church on International Boulevard at 2 p.m. Monday, along with actor Danny Glover. Both will honor Dr. J Alfred Smith’s 85th birthday. This event is open to the public, although space is expected to fill up quickly.

    Former U.S. Secretary of Labor and current University of California, Berkeley professor Robert Reich posted on Facebook that he would be introducing Sanders at an event on Tuesday, but that event has not yet been confirmed by the campaign.

    Both Sanders and Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton have been to the Bay Area several times in the past month, whipping up support. Clinton held several rallies throughout the Bay Area this week, while Sanders has been holding his characteristically "huge" rallies in several Bay Area locales.

    CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article stated that Bernie Sanders would be at the Church Sunday and Monday. He will only be at the church on Monday, although Glover will be at the church both days.
