Saturday’s Action-Packed Agenda

 

We’re excited to announce our program for Saturday afternoon’s Resist Hate RI Community Meeting at Juanita Sanchez Education Complex!

The Extraordinary Rendition Band will kick things off to get our blood running. Our general session will feature the kickoff of two new initiatives from the RHRI Outreach Team, followed by a presentation from the Step Up Network on the Community Safety Act. We’ll then divide into issue-focused subgroups, with a goal of creating and planning a concrete action on each issue. Each subgroup will include an expert on the topic, but they’re not responsible for the action ideas — you are! So bring your best and craziest ideas on whichever of the following topics you’d like to see progress on:

  • Immigration: Trust Act
  • Immigration: Sanctuary Cities
  • Single Payer Health Care
  • Defending the Affordable Care Act
  • Environment: Climate Change and Carbon Pricing
  • Environment: Fighting Fossil Fuel Infrastructure
  • Providence Community Safety Act
  • Gun Violence Prevention
  • Reproductive Rights
  • Conversion Therapy Ban
  • Earned Sick Days
  • $15/hour Minimum Wage
  • Free College Tuition
  • Voting Rights
  • General Strike Preparation
  • Resistance Choir

Please RSVP and share our Facebook event…. See you Saturday at 3!
