Clinton said in her video released Sunday (via Bustle):

I’m getting ready to do something too. I’m running for president. Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times. But the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion. So you can do more than just get by. You can get ahead, and stay ahead. Because when families are strong, America is strong. So I’m hitting the road to earn your vote, because it’s your time. And I hope you’ll join me on this journey.

Among those featured in the video:

  • A woman tending to a garden: “It’s spring, so we’re starting to get the gardens ready, and my tomatoes are legendary here in my own neighborhood.”
  • A mother, worried about education: “My daughter is about to start kindergarten next year, and so we’re moving so she can belong to a better school.”
  • Two brothers, speaking Spanish: “My brother and I are starting our first business.”
  • Another mother: “After five years of raising my children, I am now going back to work.”
  • A young couple: Woman: “Every day we’re trying to get more and more ready and more prepared.” Man: “Baby boy, coming your way.”
  • A female student: “Right now I’m applying for jobs. It’s a look into what the real world will look like after college.”
  • An LGBT couple: “I’m getting married this summer to someone I really care about.”
  • A child: “I’m gonna be in the play, and I’m going to be in a fish costume. [Sings] From little tiny fishes…
  • A soon-to-be retiree: “I’m getting ready to retire soon. Retirement means reinventing yourself in many ways.”
  • A couple of dog owners: Woman: “Well, we’ve been doing a lot of home renovations.” Man: “But most importantly, we just want to teach our dog to quit eating the trash.” Woman: “And so we have high hopes for 2015 that that’s going to happen.”
  • A man in a factory: “I’ve started a new career recently. This is a fifth generation company, which means a lot to me. This country was founded on hard work, and it really feels good to be a part of that.”
