On this week’s program, we hear a recent speech by the legedary 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 at
Sonoma State University in northern California, as part of the campus’s annual Social Justice Week Lecture Series.
