Veronica Marshall, a nurse from Alabama, got the movement for nurses to march on Washington when she made a Facebook post last winter. Within a week, more than 170,000 nurses had joined the Facebook group. She said she hoped Thursday’s march would inspire more political activity.

“We want several bills to be passed,” she said, including one that addresses workplace violence and a national staffing ratio cap. Photo credit: Rose Hoban
