New Mobile App Makes Political Action Easy

John F. Kennedy said, “One person can make a difference and every person should try.”

National Nurses United is making it easier with a mobile app called Payback.  It provides information about vital political issues for nurses such as the Main Street Contract and Occupy Wall Street. Plus tells you how to support nurses fighting to keep patients safe and how to make your voice heard in support of a Wall Street transaction tax.

Check it out by texting the word “payback” to 53000 from your mobile phone. You will receive instructions and a link to download.

When she wasn’t rescuing wounded skiers as a member of the ski patrol or bombing snow-congested mountainsides to control avalanches, she and her husband, John, were proving to the world that a full life was possible in spite of each living with an autoimmune disorder. Kim shares her inspiring story with us.
