Ralph Nader

 

Ralph Nader was born in Winsted, Connecticut, and was educated at Princeton University and Harvard Law School. He practiced law in Hartford and was admitted to the Connecticut bar, the Massachusetts bar, and the United States Supreme Court. In 1968 he established the Center for the Study of Responsive Law in Washington, D.C. where thousands of "Nader's Raiders" learned to be activists and leaders. Nader was active in dealing with health and environmental issues which he demonstrated as a consultant for the Assistant Secretary of Labor and in his book Unsafe at Any Speed. He later helped to create reforms such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Safe Drinking Water Act. Nader also ran for president in 1996 as a member of the Green Party to promote his environmental views.
