We chat with Hillary Rosen, founder of A Purposeful Rescue in Los Angeles. Also, nurses from around the country have been protesting a lack of protections for treating patients with COVID-19. We speak with Zenei Cortez, co-president of National Nurses United, the largest union of registered nurses in the country. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's April 9, 2020, full broadcast.
