This week our union honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was assassinated 44 years ago on April 4, 1968.
King was in Memphis to march with striking sanitation workers as part of his Poor People's Campaign.
In his final speech on April 3, King reminded the sanitation workers, and all working people: “When people get caught up with that which is right and they are willing to sacrifice for it, there is no stopping point short of victory.”

The association represents registered nurses, and some all-professional bargaining units, in New York and New Jersey. It supports nurses and nursing practice through education, research, legislative advocacy, and collective bargaining.
