Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders addressed thousands in San Diego at the Convention Center on March 22, 2016, in what his campaign called ''A Future to Believe In Rally."
Sanders' visit to San Diego comes one day after he used an appearance at a Salt Lake City school to deliver the speech he would have given at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference in Washington had his schedule permitted.
The 74-year-old Sanders, who would be the nation's first Jewish president, pledged to restart peace talks in the Middle East, a process he said would require ''hard but just decisions'' to put Israel and the Palestinians on a ''path toward peace.''
Wearing T-shirts and holding “Feel the Bern” signs, the voters were aiming to drum up support for Sanders. “I live about an hour from here to be here,” Carlsbad resident Catherine O’Callahan said. “This is something really big. You know, the message. It’s a political revolution."
Interpret San Diego was fortunate to work with a very agreeable campaign staff. They felt providing the Deaf community access to Senator Sanders’ message was important.
