With everything going on in Washington, this isn’t an easy time for those of us who value equality, justice, and fairness. Here at home, state leaders put politics over people by abruptly adjourning the legislative session with critical bills – from guaranteeing earned sick time, to disarming domestic abusers, to raising the minimum wage – unresolved.
At this critical time, it is more important than ever for communities like ours to make our voices heard here in Rhode Island. But getting involved shouldn’t just be about marches and phone calls. Let’s take a moment this summer to regroup and connect with those who live near us. Come to a HOUSE PARTY!
Resist Hate RI is joining with Working Families Party, Sierra Club, and Planned Parenthood to host house parties all around the state. These parties will be hosted by your neighbors and your friends in your community. (We’re still looking for more hosts. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can open your home to a small group of folks this summer.)
At these house parties, we’ll talk politics, we’ll plan for the future, and — and this is important — we’ll also have a great time! We’ll drink, eat, and meet each other to keep our work of standing up for our community and our state going strong.
We have several house parties planned, but here are some coming up:
Thursday, July 20 at 7 PM
Where: 143 Bradford St, Bristol, RI 02809
Who: RHRI steering committee member Laufton Ascencao-Longo

See you this summer,
Resist Hate Rhode Island Steering Committee
