Actress Rosario Dawson spoke out against Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz Tuesday before introducing Bernie Sanders at a campaign rally in San Diego, California.

According to a video posted on NBC News, Dawson told Sanders' supporters the reason they showed up to the rally wasn't because "they're being encouraged by the media or the DNC," pointing out comments Schultz made during a CNN interview that "the reason superdelegates exist is to push back against grassroots organizing."

"So we need you now more than ever," Dawson said. "We need you to spread the message and talk about our future."

Dawson, an actress in the TV series "Daredevil" and movies "Sin City" and "Rent," showcased the movement of younger voters who support Sanders.

"The youth has been on the right side of history on every issue."

She discussed the youth movement's role in history, saying, "They talked about those hippie college kids when they were protesting against Vietnam." And, credited Sanders' career supporting youth movements.

"Martin Luther King Jr., who Bernie Sanders walked with, couldn't have gotten, and done what he did, if it wasn't for high school students who said 'I'm not afraid to do a sit-in.'"

The actress said the race is not about "the GOP versus the DNC," but the campaign is for the American people, "the 99 percent that is too big to fail."

Adding, Sanders' supporters "haven't left the Democratic Party. They have left us." 

Over 12,000 Sanders supporters turned out for the rally, according to Fox 5 San Diego. Sanders commented on police brutality, equal pay and the terror attacks in Brussels.

Dawson's full eight-and-a-half minute speech appeared on MSNBC.
