Presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will speak at Stanford University Wednesday morning on counter-terrorism, in the wake of the deadly bombings in Belgium on Tuesday.
Ms. Clinton is due to appear in Atherton at a political fundraiser luncheon at the home of SolarCity's chief executive officer, Lyndon Rive, later in the day.
Ms. Clinton's speech is scheduled for 11:15 a.m. at the Bechtel Conference Center at Encina Hall, 616 Serra Mall, according to her campaign.
In her address, Ms. Clinton will urge solidarity with Europe to defeat the Islamic State group, according to her campaign. The speech comes after dozens of people were reported killed and hundreds injured Tuesday in bombings at an airport and transit station in and near Brussels.
"These terrorists seek to undermine the democratic values that are the foundation of our allegiance and our way of life, but they will never succeed," Ms. Clinton said Tuesday in a statement. "Today's attacks will only strengthen our resolve to stand together as allies and defeat terrorism and radical jihadism around the world."
The hosts of Ms. Clinton's visit to Atherton are using the town's new special events permit ordinance, which will require them to pay for any special police or other services, such as traffic diversions. City Manager George Rodericks said the event sponsors had requested only one police officer to coordinate with the Secret Service.
For a similar fundraising event visit by President Barack Obama in February the hosts were recently billed $5,909.79, Mr. Rodericks said.
