Recognition: Labor Meets Art in Explorations of Identity and Social Justice

The California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee is pleased to present “Recognition,” a group exhibition that explores the acknowledgment of a person’s existence, validity, identity, or legality within the context of gender, environmental, health care, and social equality—all issues to be discussed at the union’s 2019 Global Nurses Solidarity Assembly in September.
