PHOTOS: Nurses march for fair wages, end to violence on health workers

As the U.S. marked one million deaths from COVID-19, nurses from around the country marched through D.C. on Thursday morning.

Several nurse’s organizations gathered at the White House before marching to Audi Field, where they held a memorial service. Nurses said they marched to fight for fair wages and end violence and discrimination against health care workers.
