National Nurses United (NNU) lead an action outside the White House to honor the nurses who have died from COVID-19 and demand that the administration do more to protect frontline health care workers around the country.

Nurses placed shoes near the White House, one pair of shoes to represent every nurse's life lost due to insufficient PPE in the COVID pandemic. Nurses then read out loud the names of their colleagues who have died during this pandemic, and several will give remarks.
