CROWN HEIGHTS, BROOKLYN - Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton appeared at Medgar Evers College in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn Tuesday for a campaign rally.

Around 500 people packed the gymnasium, and supporters appeared excited.

Clinton focused on women's issues like paid family leave and equal pay for women, as well as affordable education for everyone.

"We are going to require more transparency from businesses, because right now, if you try to find out what somebody doing your job is making, you can get fired or retaliated against," Clinton said about the fight for equal pay. "We will end that."

Supporters repeatedly chanted "I'm with her," and "We need Hillary."
