Let me introduce myself. I am Ashley, and I work for the Ralph Nader campaign. I will be writing more about this in future posts, but I support him as a candidate because I believe he stands for the social justice and peace that is so central to cooperativist principles.
Nader is speaking at a rally in Salt Lake this Thursday at 7:30 pm. If you are in the area, please come. Either way, check out votenader.org to see how you think Nader fits with cooperative values.
Here is some more information:
Ralph Nader, the Independent Candidate for President, will bring his "People Fighting Back" campaign to Salt Lake City! Featured speakers will include Ralph Nader and Rocky Anderson. Whether you agree or not with Mr. Nader, we invite you to come to this event and hear alternative solutions to major political problems.
Please pass the word on. Pass this event on to Facebook friends, copy and past this text to an e-mail and send it to everyone you know, email the electronic flyers you downloadable from the Nader in Utah Facebook group site. But most importantly, try to bring 5 people with you to the event.
