Nate Carpenter with the Rhode Island Progressive Democrats of America joined GoLocal News Editor Kate Nagle on GoLocal LIVE where he spoke to top items on their 2019 legislative agenda -- as well an upcoming book drive. 

On Thursday, January 10 at 6:30 PM. the Progressive Dems will be holding a book drive with Our Revolution RI at The Wild Colonial in Providence. 

"This isn’t just any book drive because what we’d like to see is the donation of a book that had the most positive impact on you as a child. The idea is to pass on these lessons to complete strangers from the next generation and what a better way to do it than with a book drive. Whether it be exposure to teen angst with Catcher in the Rye or a person’s mindset with The Power of Positive Thinking, we would love for you to come and pass along the book that taught you an important life lesson," said Carpenter.

Carpenter spoke to RIPDA's top legislative goals 2019, including addressing "lunch shaming" -- when students are unable to pay for lunch at school; working for an increase in the minimum wage, supporting the Reproductive Health Care Act to affirm the right to abortion in Rhode Island; and continuing to press for the legalization of marijuana following Massachusetts.
