National Healthcare Systems Patients, First Responders to Join Emotional September 11th Rally With a Plea for Politicians to Focus on Guaranteed Healthcare for all Californians

OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee will convene its national convention in Sacramento Monday, greeting hundreds of registered nurses from around the U.S. and the world -- and pressing the campaign for genuine, guaranteed healthcare reform in California and Washington. The conference is at the Sacramento Convention Center.

Highlighting the proceedings, convention delegates joined by community supporters will march to the Capitol Tuesday for a rally to press the case with California legislators and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for real reform, not just cosmetic changes that reinforce the insurance-based system that created the current crisis.

This convention marks the first since CNA/NNOC's affiliation with the AFL-CIO, uniting one of the nation's fastest growing unions, CNA/NNOC, with millions of other union members. To mark the occasion, AFL-CIO Secretary Treasurer Richard Trumka will deliver the convention keynote address. Author and columnist Barbara Ehrenreich will also speak.

Additionally, RNs from Canada, Great Britain, and Australia will tell the real story about single-payer or national healthcare systems in their countries, describing the kind of healthcare system that Americans and Californians could have with the enactment of HR 676 in Congress or SB 840 in California.
