This week on Utah NOW, a conversation with Ralph Nader. Throughout his career the controversial candidate and consumer advocate has tormented corporate America and the country's political establishment. But like him or not, there is no denying his influence on American public life.
For more information on Ralph Nader, visit his website at votenader.org.
Ralph Nader is a consumer advocate, lawyer, author, and has been named byTime Magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential Americans in the Twentieth Century. For over four decades Ralph Nader has exposed problems and organized millions of citizens into more than 100 public interest groups to advocate for solutions.
His efforts have helped to create a framework of laws, regulatory agencies, and federal standards that have improved the quality of life for two generations of Americans. His groups were instrumental in enacting the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the Safe Drinking Water Act.
In the past decade, Nader has dedicated himself to putting people back in charge of America's democracy, launching three major presidential campaigns. Because of Ralph Nader we drive safer cars, eat healthier food, breath better air, drink cleaner water, and work in safer environments.
This is the first time that I've heard Nader speak, and I am proud to say that I had a completely wrong image of the man. The interview was excellent, and opened my eyes to a lot of information. Thanks Utah Now!
P.s. *hehe* Doug Fabrizio is awesome!!! I'm glad he's in Utah and working in Public Broadcasting!! Keep it up!
