Hillary Clinton will be leaving her home in Chappaqua, New York, where she has been since losing the presidential election last month, to headline a send-off for outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.

The gala recognizing Reid's 30 years of service will take place at the end of the legislative session next week at the Kennedy Caucus Room in the Russell Senate Office Building, the Washington Post reported.

Clinton is set to give a speech, as well as Vice President Joe Biden.

The former Democratic presidential nominee has been spending much of her time in Chappaqua since the election. Pictures have surfaced recently of Clinton walking in the woods near her home. She was also seen grocery shopping and looking through a bookstore in Rhode Island.

Thursday's event will be her second public speech in D.C. since the election loss to Donald Trump.

Her first public appearance was at a charity gala for the Children's Defense Fund, where she admitted to the public that it was hard for her to come out and give a speech after her loss.

"I will admit, coming here tonight wasn't the easiest thing for me," Clinton said. "There have been a few times this past week where all I wanted to do was curl up with a good book and our dogs and never leave the house again."
