In a video announcing the endorsements, activists Delaney Tarr, Ryan Deitsch, Robert Schentrup, Maxwell Frost, Nurah Abdullhaqq, Chris Grady, Thandiwe Abdullah, and Daud Mumin express their support for Sanders and the senator's 'intersectional' approach to solving gun violence in America.
As Common Dreams reported February 8, Sanders brought on March for Our Lives co-founder Matt Deitsch as a campaign gun violence prevention advisor. Deitsch in a tweet Thursday welcomed his fellow activists to the fold.
'Bernie Sanders is building an intersectional movement to end our gun violence epidemic,' Deitsch said.
