Senator Sanders spoke about his stance on several hot topics, including mass incarceration. "We're going to make the changes we need by ending cash bail in America, because we have 400,000 people in jail today who haven't been convicted of anything," Sanders said. "They're in jail because they're poor. We're going to end private prisons and detention."
Sanders ended the rally by telling his supporters that he plans to be their Democratic presidential nominee. "We can win here in Massachusetts, we can win the Democratic nomination," Sanders told the crowds. "We can beat Donald Trump, and we can transform this country."
