Action for a Change. A Student's Manual for Public Interest Organizing.
Nader, Ralph; Ross, Donald
In this action-oriented manual, Ralph Nader answers the plea of college students: What can we do about pollution and consumer injustice? How can students and other citizens work to get things done in their communities and states? A step by step guide is offered for forming Public Interest Research Groups (PIRG) like Nader's in Washington, D. C., and the Nader-inspired PIRG's in Minnesota and Oregon. Attorney Donald Ross shows in detail how to initiate public interest and research groups, how to marshal talent, how to finance the group, and how to put it to work. The PIRG approach is advocated to bring about "initiatory democracy," a full-time citizenry, aware, informed, and constantly acting upon social, economic, and political institutions in the public interest.
