RICH: Please Join Us at the State House on May 10th!

Event Date: May 10, 2017 - 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

Join Us at the State House for 2017 "Power of Community" Advocacy Day

Wednesday, May 10th

3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

2nd floor at the State House

82 Smith Street * Providence

Join us and our partners at the Housing Network of RI and Rhode Island Community Action Association for the "Power of Community" Advocacy Day 2017 to show the General Assembly why building affordable housing and ending homelessness is critical to our communities.

Advocates and constituents from the homeless and affordable housing community will gather at the State House to meet with local legislators about the difference housing, homeless prevention and services has made in the lives of so many residents of Rhode Island - whether they were homeless or in danger of falling into homelessness without a place they could afford.

You can help us spread the word by distributing this flier. See you there!


We understand it's difficult to get to the State House on a Wednesday afternoon for many people, but you can still help us by participating in our Call-In Day at the same time!

The process is easy.

  • Look up your Senator and Representative by entering your home address (or address of current residence) at the Voter Information Center.
  • Use the Contact Information pages for the RI Senate and the RI House of Representatives to find the phone number for your legislators
  • Call your legislators and ask them to support a) increasing refundable EITC to 20%, b) supporting a $5 million appropriation for affordable housing development, and c) restoring the RIPTA no fare Bus Pass Program.
