The Green Party will have its long-awaited town hall on Wednesday, giving outsider nominee Jill Stein a chance to make her case to voters.

Stein and her running partner, human rights activist and writer Ajamu Baraka, will hold the event on CNN at 9:00pm EDT. It will be moderated by the network's Chris Cuomo, in what is poised to be Stein's "most high-profile moment" in her bid to shake up the 2016 election, CNNwrites.

The livestream will be available here. On Twitter, the event will be updated under the hashtag #GreenTownHall.

Journalists and audience members will have the chance to ask Stein and Baraka, who are relatively unknown on the national stage, questions about their platform. Stein gained increased media attention after she called on the American left and supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to back her campaign as an alternative to establishment figures like Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump.

"Tired of the same old political duopoly?" the Green Party tweeted on Wednesday. "Tune in to CNN at 9pm to learn more about the Green Party and @DrJillStein!"
