Governor Jerry Brown will speak at the National Nurses United (NNU) union's convention this evening, Lieutenant Gov. Gavin Newsom is scheduled to address the organization tomorrow morning, and filmmaker Michael Moore is slated to speak to at the conference on Friday. Over 1,000 nurses are scheduled to attend the convention in San Francisco.
NNU is also actively engaged in a "campaign for a tax on Wall Street financial speculation in order to provide revenue for Main Street reforms, including jobs at living wages, guaranteed healthcare for all, and freedom from hunger, homelessness, and retirement insecurity."
