Big names from the Democratic Party spoke at Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network in New York City on Friday in a bid to set the wheels in motion ahead of the 2020 Presidential elections.

Among those who spoke included Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, both of whom have tossed their hats in the ring to be the Democrats nominees.

Another speaker included New York rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who said that in "a time of radically deep problems" what is needed are "radically visionary solutions."

"Radical does not mean crazy. Radical means addressing the root, addressing the rot," she said.

On her part, Warren called upon Democrats to abolish the filibuster once they retake the Oval Office.

Harris and Warren are taking part in the biggest Democratic field in modern times, with 18 attempting to be selected as the leading candidate going into 2020.
