Young Greens of Rhode Island to Host Organizational Meeting
Wednesday, May 23, 2018
The meeting will take place at 1:30 p.m.
“With the upsurge of activism and organizing since 2016, it seems that one key aspect has remained missing: a solidarity movement linking the struggle for environmental protection across Rhode Island with the fight against environmental racism within the urban core of Providence. Right now there are important struggles going on in Providence that confront the poisoning of Black and Brown families and children by industrial ecological degradation. It is important to link activists from around the state with these struggles while simultaneously opposing and educating against white supremacy. The Young Greens can facilitate this while maintaining an absolute independence from the corporate political parties that both bear responsibility for these policies,” said Andrew Stewart, an organizer with the caucus.
Membership is open to all Green voters under the age of 35.
Those over 35 are welcome to participate as Young Greens at Heart supporters.
