RNs from across the country and the globe convened in Las Vegas from September 22-25, 2014 for Planet Nurse. Then, on September 24, more than 1,000 U.S. RNs, joined by nurses and other health workers from around the world, held a "die-in" to voice a growing concern – are we doing enough to stop the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and prevent the spread of similar pandemics in communities in the U.S. and other nations? #PlanetRN14

Actor Robert Redford talks with radio commentator Jim Hightower at the retirement ceremony to celebrate Joan Claybrook's years as president of Public Citizen.

 

About 300 Public Citizen supporters packed the Sewall-Belmont House on Capitol Hill on Tuesday to honor Public Citizen's former president and consumer advocate extraordinaire, Joan Claybrook.

 

Old friends of Public Citizen and Washington, D.C.’s progressive community came out to celebrate Joan’s 27 years of tireless leadership and her enduring legacy. Prior to the event, our headquarters building near Dupont Circle was named in her honor, Public Citizen’s Joan Claybrook Building.

 

Washington Post’s Reliable Source columnists reported on some of Joan’s more illustrious fans:

 

"As head of watchdog group Public Citizen for 27 years, she fought for safer cars, medicines, a whole slew of consumer products. In her wake, she gathered exasperated admirers who came to bid farewell: [Sen. John] McCain and Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), who called her 'unrelenting'; Ralph Nader, who said she 'bitterly wants to win'; and brother Warren Buckler, who called her 'manipulative' — but in a good way.";

 

Others in attendance included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Sen. Feingold, D-Wis, plus actor and environmentalist Robert Redford.

 

The Associated Press reported: Redford honored Claybrook as a teacher, mentor and friend. “She taught me the ropes of how to lobby and how to develop patience, which is not my virtue,” he said.

 

Here’s to many more years of relentless advocacy for Joan and Public Citizen!

Washington, D.C. – With the latest showdown over the government shutdown and debt limit finally over and the next budget fight beginning, a coalition of healthcare, community, faith-based, and labor activists will call on Congress members Wednesday, October 30 to shift the tone from austerity budget cuts to expanding revenues with a small tax on Wall Street speculation that can bring hundreds of billions of dollars into the budget to help rebuild our economy.

 

The Robin Hood Tax campaign, endorsed by more than 160 local and national organizations, will precede the lobby effort with march to the Capitol, and a briefing for members of Congress and the media.
