America should work for all of us. #votetogether

Special thanks to the people on the streets of New York who lent their faces to this film and to the idea of togetherness.

The film has received over 25 million+ views since it premiered at a Bernie Rally in Iowa making it potentially the most viewed ad of the 2016 election cycle. The film was called Ad of the Week by NYT. Bernie Sanders campaign licensed the ad and it was broadcast on TV as an official Bernie Sanders ad. The accompanying hashtag #votetogether trended on Twitter nationally twice.
