Just got off a conference call with Labor for Bernie.
Each one of these calls is more inspiring than the last. We heard from representatives from Communication Workers of America, from National Nurses United, and others.
Well, this is exciting news indeed! The Nurses have headed out in a big red bus, on tour for Bernie Sanders. Right now they are in Las Vegas. I am sooo jealous!
Nurses to Send Off the #BernieBus from Los Angeles
National Nurses United Press Release, 1/5/16
Contact Information | Media Center
Headed to Early Voting States, Nevada and Iowa
‘The Most Trusted Profession Trusts Bernie’. If voters in the early primary states have not yet seen that message now posted on select billboards in states like Nevada and Iowa, they’ll soon be able to see it rolling by on wheels. The bus will bring nurses to meet with community groups, students, and other supporters and voters.
Joined by Glendale area nurses, National Nurses United, the first national labor organization to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders for President, will kick off a national bus campaign for Bernie Sanders Tuesday morning from Glendale, headed first to Nevada.
What: Kickoff of Nurses’ #BernieBus
When: Tuesday, January 5, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Where: Glendale Memorial Hospital, on Laurel between Central and Brand, adjacent to hospital at 1420 S. Central Ave., Glendale
“Bernie Sanders best represents nurses’ values of caring, compassion and community,” said NNU Co-President Deborah Burger, RN, who will accompany the bus from Los Angeles to its first stop in Las Vegas. “The 440,000 people who have attended Bernie’s rallies and the record number of individual donors demonstrate that Bernie is building a broad campaign of supporters ready for the fundamental reform we need to heal America. That’s the message we’ll carry across America on the #BernieBus.”
