Rose Ann DeMoro discusses the Mainstreet Contract for America, a new activist movement inspired by nurses but extending to everyone.

Nurses see that our country is sinking everyday—wide swaths of our country do not have access to the preventative care that should be available to all Americans. This is not a coincidence; it is a sign of our times. People of all ages are losing access to basic human rights such as healthcare because corporations are hoarding money that should be going to job creation and social services.

This Wednesday, nurses are fighting back by marching on Wall Street, demanding accountability from the financial sector for the damage done to Main Street. In this Nation Conversation, Executive Director of the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee (CNA/NNOC) Rose Ann DeMoro explains why this new activist movement inspired by nurses is working to raise the standard of living for everyone.
