Citizen activist and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader will be the keynote speaker at Between The Lines Radio Newsmagazine's 20th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, May 14 in New Haven, CT. Nader's speech, "Overcoming the Power of the Plutocrats by Forging the Power of the People," will address the topic of corporate dominance of the U.S. political system and the fight now underway in Wisconsin and around the country to restore democracy.
The event will be held from 7-8:30 p.m. at the United Church on the Green, 270 Temple St., New Haven, CT (corner of Temple and Elm Streets). Suggested contribution: ($10 advance, $15 at the door).
In addition to Ralph Nader's talk and booksigning, Between The Lines will present its "Democracy in Action" awards to two Connecticut groups that embody the best of grassroots progressive activism: The Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut and Council 4 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees - AFSCME.
