Rhode Island is a fascinating state. Did you know, for example, that while Democrats control our state legislature, the General Assembly is overwhelmingly anti-choice?
On a host of issues, citizens who are concerned about the status of women and girls in Rhode Island cannot always, or even sometimes, expect our legislators to do the right thing. That’s why RI NOW is vigilant in tracking legislation, lobbying members of the General Assembly and standing up for the rights of women and girls in the Ocean State through our democratic process.
Here, we provide tools, information, and action opportunities for RI NOW members, friends, and allies. We invite you to work with us during the 2012 session of the General Assembly to help advance our legislative priorities. Together, we can make a difference for women and girls in Rhode Island. Click here to view our 2011 Legislative Highlights. Our forthcoming 2012 Legislative Agenda will track bills affecting women’s lives. Check back soon!
Please contact us if you have any comments or questions about this website, our legislative agenda, or about opportunities to get more actively involved in RI NOW. We look forward to hearing from you!
