 Minneapolis, MN 55455

On Friday, October 31 at 6:30pm, consumer advocate and Presidential candidate Ralph Nader will hold a press conference at the University of Minnesota followed by a rally in Willey Hall Room 175.  He will speak about the Wall St. Bailout, single-payer health care, the Iraq War, the environment, and the state of the Presidential debates from which he was excluded.

He will also speak about a host of local issues and show the people of Minneapolis how those local concerns fit into his national campaign.  The people of Minnesota have shown their willingness to break from the two-party system, and Mr. Nader is ready to ask them, what is their breaking point in this election?

Ralph Nader is the only Presidential candidate who recommends jail time, not bail time for Wall Street fat cats (and the only one who has been pointing out the risks of deregulation for the last 20 years).  He is the number three contender for the Presidency, America’s number one consumer advocate, and he has real solutions to our economic woes.

About Ralph Nader

Attorney, author, and consumer advocate Ralph Nader has been named by Time Magazine one of the "100 Most Influential Americans in the 20th Century." For more than four decades he has exposed problems and organized millions of citizens into more than 100 public interest groups advocating solutions. He led the movement to establish the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and was instrumental in enacting the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Motor Vehicle Safety Act, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and countless other pieces of important consumer legislation. Because of Ralph Nader we drive safer cars, eat healthier food, breathe better air, drink cleaner water, and work in safer environments. Nader graduated from Princeton University and received an LL.B from Harvard Law School.
