Join Ralph Nader for the NYC launch of his latest book, "Told You So: The Big Book of Weekly Columns." He will be interviewed by Amy Goodman.

Ralph Nader, the forthright columnist, addresses today’s most pressing issues: the consequences of concentrated corporate power; environmental threats; the corrosive effect of commercialism upon our children; the dismantling of workers’ rights; and the attacks on our civil rights and liberties.

About Ralph Nader:
For the past 45 years, Ralph Nader 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 Ralph Nader a household name. As a result of his efforts, cars have more safety features. 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 gave increased public access to government documents. This brought freedom of press to a new level, resulting in increased access for journalists.

Ralph Nader 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.
