New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is making a stop in Brookline on Saturday to stump for Dr. Raul Fernandez, a candidate for the town’s Select Board.

The get-out-the-vote event with Ocasio-Cortez comes just days ahead of the town’s May 7 election. The event will include a talk featuring Ocasio-Cortez, followed by a rally for volunteers on the Fernandez campaign.

Ocasio-Cortez is no stranger to Boston. She graduated from Boston University in 2011 and in October appeared at an event with Fernandez at Coolidge Corner Theater in Brookline to discuss the Michael Moore film “Fahrenheit 11/9,’’ which featured her campaign.
