Meeting reminder

RIPDA Statewide Meeting – July 11

By Alan Ginet | July 6, 2011

These are interesting times here in the Ocean State. We are still struggling to recover from an historic recession, and many of our neighbors are hurting. Progressives today are challenged to respond to calls for drastic cuts to state services, coupled with massive tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy. Restrictions on womens’ health, voting, and marriage rights may endanger all of our freedoms. On the national level we face similar obstacles, with a war-machine that consumes our national treasure. In short, we Rhode Island Progressives have much to do! Here at RIPDA, we have been working hard on issues of social justice, ending the wars, healthcare, the environment, and free and fair elections.
Please bring all your great ideas for bold, progressive actions!

Please come to our next meeting.
Monday, July 11
6:30 – 8:00
Weaver Library
41 Grove Avenue
East Providence, RI
RSVP here.
