Small gestures in a time of global need
Yesterday I gave blood. It was a small contribution in a moment of global need.
But there is nothing I could do right now that compares to the vital and lifesaving role of our healthcare workers on the frontlines. They are my heroes. Will you join me in sending a note of appreciation to them?
Every day the experts increase their prediction for infection and fatality. And everyday hospital custodians, nurses, nursing assistants, and other healthcare workers put themselves at risk to care for those who are suffering.
I am humbled and profoundly honored that during this global pandemic, our campaign has earned the sole labor endorsements of SEIU 1199NW, SEIU 925, and the Washington State Nurses Association. These organizations collectively represent more healthcare, caregiver, and childcare workers in our state than any other organization.
Now more than ever, it matters that these workers are represented by powerful unions who stand up for them.
Please join me in sending a note of gratitude to our amazing healthcare workers who are sacrificing their own health for us.
Stay home. Stay safe. We are all in this together.
