New Clinton Ad to Feature Moms of Guns and Police Violence

The mothers of Dontre Hamilton, Eric Garner, Jordan Davis, Sandra Bland and Trayvon Martin endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in a emotional video released by the Clinton campaign on Friday.

The women, who have publicly supported Clinton at events throughout the country, each have a son or daughter who died at the hands of police brutality or gun violence. They explain their stories and their support for the democratic front-runner in the 3 minute video.

The "Mothers of the Movement" include Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed by George ZImmerman in 2012, Geneva Reed-Veal, the mother of Sandra Bland, who was found dead in a jail cell in 2015, Maria Hamilton, the mother of Dontre Hamilton, who was shot 14 times by police in 2014, Lucia McBath, the mother of Jordan Davis, who was shot and killed at a gas station in 2012 and Gwen Carr, the mother of Eric Garner, who died after being held in a chokehold by police in 2014.

In the video the mothers describe how they've turned their grief into action and that a Clinton presidency would aide their fight for justice -- not only for their children, but for all who are affected by police brutality and gun violence.

"She's been fighting for a long time with these issues," Gwen Carr said in her endorsement of Clinton.

The mothers seek a solution to the gun violence epidemic in America and police reform, issues Clinton has addressed in her campaign:

"Finally, someone here is really willing to listen and to really stimulate change," Lucia McBath said.

The "Mothers of the Movement" will be stumping for Clinton in Ohio on Saturday and Sunday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
