Breaking Through Power by Empowering Citizens

Breaking Through Power by Empowering Citizens

Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:
Empowering Citizen Leaders

Nader believes “I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.”

In that belief Nader has organized a national Conference on Breaking Through Power to empower citizens to lead in efforts to build a Safer America.  He describes the Conference at

The program overview is at

This comes at a time when America is suffering from nearly 4 million deaths from vehicle violence historically.  Currently America is suffering vehicle violence of about 100 deaths + 400 serious injuries + losses valued at nearly $2 billion – every average day.  And last year vehicle violence increased by about 10% in the U.S.A.   

All this suffering and losses with consequences that will go on forever!   And all this suffering when never before has humankind had more scientific and technological ability to end vehicle violence in a decade.

Citizen’s Vision
Marianne and Jerry Karth, parents who lost two daughters to vehicle violence, have become leaders in the U.S.A. to gain support for Vision Zero for crash deaths and serious injuries.  They have gathered more than 20,000 signatures on a petition to end vehicle violence.  They have delivered the petition to the Obama Administration.  Note the insightful comments by Jerry Karth in the petition.  See Vision Zero Petition Book 3rd Edition

Hopefully, this Nader Conference will empower citizens to advance the day when we achieve Vision Zero crash violence in the U.S.A.
