Our annual fundraiser is the perfect opportunity to learn more about our campaigns to advance environmental protections at the state and local level and to mingle with likeminded people. We'll also have great food and craft beer from Heavy Seas, and a ton a of great auction items to bid on.
We need your help to educate and elect pro-environment candidates. Your support for our political programs is a long-term investment in preventing pollution, building an economy based on environmentally safe jobs and businesses, and empowering Rhode Islanders to take charge of our environmental future.
These victories would not have been possible without strong pro-environment legislators committed to improving quality of life in Rhode Island.
But we are only going to get there if you participate.
