Memorial Held In Washington, DC For Nurses Who Battled COVID-19 Pandemic

Nurses affiliated with the group National Nurses United read the names of registered nurses who died during the COVID-19 pandemic while demonstrating in Black Lives Matter Plaza May 12, 2021, in Washington, D.C. The group placed a pair of shoes “for every RN who has died during this pandemic due to a lack of employer and federal government action to protect nurses and other health care workers from getting infected with COVID-19 at work.” (Win McNamee/Getty Images)
