The Bernie Sanders campaign has become well known for releasing moving, positive campaign ads in the absence of the more accusatory and nasty ads we have come to know from political campaigns.

Though some opponents have clamored for Sanders to leave the race for weeks now, this newest political ad sends a powerful message to those detractors: I still have work to do, I still have a message to share.

This newest ad focuses on the devastating impact our past decades of mass incarceration has had on generations of individuals and their families.
