On this week’s program, we hear a speech by the legendary political activist and consumer-rights advocate
Ralph Nader. Nader outlines some of the most critical problems facing Americans, including exorbitant military spending,
out-of-control corporations, and thousands of annual deaths in the workplace, or from lack of health care coverage.
But then he names some individuals who’ve made a difference in recent U.S. history, explains what students
can accomplish on campus, and how voters can hold legislators accountable. Nader spoke on March 5, 2018 at
Sonoma State University in northern California, as part of the campus’s annual Social Justice Week Lecture Series.
