CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- More than 40 Westchester County residents gathered at the Blue Pig Ice Cream shop in Cortlandt, as part of a day of political organizing for U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign that involved more than 100,000 people nationwide.

“This is our 3rd meet up of Westchester People for Bernie. The numbers of people, their diversity and enthusiasm are extremely heartening,” said People for Bernie volunteer organizer Susan Rubin.

Nationally, People for Bernie helped mobilize more than one hundred thousand Americans to learn how to organize in their communities.

Sanders has called for a “political revolution” to combat the billionaire class who they believe are out to buy this election and dominate the political landscape.

“Tonight was an amazing experience, I have never voted, let alone gotten politically involved, but when I first heard of Bernie Sanders, I thought ‘here is a politician who is being honest’ and I knew I had to get involved,” said People for Bernie supporter Lawrence Tandol.

Sanders cmpaign focuses on combating income and wealth inequality, overturning the Supreme Court's Citizens United campaign finance decision, tuition-free public colleges and universities, ending mass incarceration, and expanding Medicare to provide health care to all Americans.
