Sanders captures support of National Nurses United - LA Times [View all]

A labor organization that represents nurses nationwide -- composed predominantly of women -- endorsed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday, the first union support he’s received in his long-shot quest to capture the Democratic presidential nomination over Hillary Rodham Clinton.

National Nurses United praised Sanders for his “uncompromised activism” in its endorsement at an Oakland gathering, ahead of his trip to Los Angeles where he’s set to hold a nighttime rally at Memorial Sports Arena.
For Curtis Chin, the Vermont senator is appealing to progressives because he represents fundamental change. Chin lives in Los Angeles and is a member of Asian Americans for Bernie Sanders, an informal grass-roots group that is separate from the campaign.

"He's really trying to change the system," Chin said. "We need a government that works for the people, and I really think he'll do it."
