Your Call: Ralph Nader on citizen power and what it takes to spark action


On the May 21st edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with citizen advocate and former Presidential candidate Ralph Nader about his latest book Return to Sender: Unanswered Letters to the President, 2001-2015. Over the past decade, Nader wrote 100 letters to presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama about everything from tax cuts to US foreign policy.  He never received a response. In the 60s and 70s, letters to Presidents received media attention and sparked change. What sparks change today? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.


Ralph Nader, author, consumer advocate,  four-time presidential candidate
