Rebellious Nursing Philly is an informal support and networking group of radical and social justice-minded nurses, students, and health care workers in the Philly area. We are also a local space for nurses and others to organize themselves around different projects and support other groups and organizations that we align ourselves with, such as Camp Sojourner!

We are walking in honor of the women whose work supports and makes possible our work as nurses, such as nursing assistants, office support staff, school paraprofessionals, and so on. In many of our places of employment the women who do these jobs are under-appreciated so we want to lift them up and honor them. We want to acknowledge that these colleagues of ours are essential and deserve living wages, full benefits, workplace democracy, and deep respect.
Thanks for supporting our walk!
