The 30-second spot features a diverse cast of activists including Harry Belafonte, Erica Garner, Shaun King and Linda Sarsour.

"People of color have a deeply vested interest in what Bernie Sanders brings to us in this election," singer and civil rights activist Belafonte says in the ad.

"People like Michael Brown, Sandra Bland and my father Eric Garner," Garner continues.

Garner, whose father died after being put in a chokehold by a police officer, has appeared in ads and on stage with the Vermont senator previously.

"They're not just hashtags and trending topics. But these are mothers and fathers, sons and daughters," says King, a writer and Black Lives Matter activist.

Sarsour, executive director of the Arab American Association of New York, adds: "Bernie Sanders sees all of me. He sees all of you. He sees us as a whole people, as a whole country. That's why I'm voting for Bernie Sanders."
