The one and only RALPH NADER will be appearing at the Union Square Barnes and Noble on Tuesday, April 7th, to sign and read from his new Seven Stories title Return to Sender: Unanswered Letters to the President, 2001-2015!
For the past forty-five years, Ralph has challenged corporations, government agencies, and institutions to be more accountable to the public. In 1965, Unsafe at Any Speed changed the face of the automobile industry and made him a household name. His lobbying and writing on the food industry insured that the food we buy is required to pass strict guidelines before reaching the consumer. One of his greatest achievements was the 1974 amendment to the Freedom of Information Act that increased public access to government documents. Ralph has co-founded numerous public interest groups including Public Citizen, Critical Mass, Commercial Alert, and the Center for Study of Responsive Law. Nader today continues to be a relentless force for grassroots activism and democratic change in the United States.
