PHILADELPHIA — A powerful moment last night at the Democratic National Convention as a group of grieving mother's took to the stage.

They call themselves the  "Mothers of the Movement".

The group consists of mothers whose unarmed African-American children died from gun violence, while in police custody or due to police actions.

Among them was Sandra Bland's mother. As you'll recall Bland was found hanged not far from Houston, inside a Waller county jail cell after a traffic stop arrest.

In an emotional plea the mothers, along with Bland's, urged delegates to stand with Hillary Clinton. As well as to lead the fight to approve common-sense gun legislation.
