Arizona Loses Meeting for Ending King Holiday

Associated Press

The National Black Nurses Assn. said Monday that it is moving its annual convention out of Arizona this year because that state's governor rescinded a state holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Instead of Phoenix, the Boston-based group's 15th national conference, focusing on nursing education, will be held Aug. 6-9 in Los Angeles, said Fadako Holmes, the association's executive director.
