Mary C. Turner

This year, for Women's History Month, we're taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making women's history across the labor movement. Check back daily for a new profile and meet some of the people working to improve not only their community, but also to improve conditions for working people across the country. Today's profile is Mary C. Turner of National Nurses United (NNU).

MNA President Mary Turner has become a recognizable face for front-line workers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to her role as a COVID-19 ICU nurse, she has testified in numerous hearings, talked to dozens of reporters and served on President Biden's COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force, representing front-line workers everywhere.
