Hundreds of union nurses convene online to call for transformative change

To claim our power, hundreds of nurses came together online Sept. 9–12, along with some incredible activists and allies, during the first-ever virtual convention for the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee (CNA/NNOC). The convention, entitled “Year of the nurse,” underscored how deeply our struggles are united, across states, across backgrounds, and even around the world, as we fight for transformative change.
