Washington, D.C. – Today, a powerful new national television ad campaign highlights the concerns of hard-working families as well as the issues that will define this election. The ad, called “We’re With Her!,” features United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) members describing the topics that matter to them – good jobs, higher wages, affordable health care, the desire to earn a better life – and why they support Secretary Hillary Clinton in this election.
“The power of this ad comes from UFCW members talking to American families about real issues,” said UFCW Communications Director Erikka Knuti. “More than anything else, this election is about the incredible struggle it takes for hard-working people to get by and get ahead. Secretary Clinton understands that Americans can’t keep struggling like this, because all of us have worked hard and deserve a better life. We’re with her, because she’s with us.”
“We’re With Her!” will premiere on TV during coverage of the 2016 Democratic National Convention and will play on video monitors in Philadelphia’s taxi cabs while they take people to and from the DNC.
The ad can be viewed here.
The script for the ad is below:
Our families deserve better
We need change.
Not cheap slogans.
We need a real leader…
…who will fight for us.
And good jobs
More affordable healthcare.
Who will stand up for our union family…
…and all hard-working families.
Who is ready to lead…
Who will work to unite us, not divide us.
For our families
For a better America.
We’re with her.”
