Please join us on Monday, May 14th for food, drink, and great conversation as we raise money to support all endorsed candidates in 2018!

The RI NOW PAC endorses candidates who agree with our goal to bring women into full participation in all aspects of public and private life without experiencing barriers based on gender. It is our core belief that, in order for women to do this, there must be:
1) both the right and the access to a full range of reproductive health care options,
2) equal opportunity on the road to economic prosperity,
3) equal civil rights regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity,
4) freedom from violence in all forms, and
5) a commitment to equality, including racial, economic and gender justice and equality.
We are very lucky to have Jennifer Lawless join us from Washington, DC as our keynote speaker. Professor Lawless is the Director of the Women & Politics Institute. She is an expert on women running for office, and political ambition more generally-- with ties to Rhode Island as well.
At the event we will also hold a silent auction, featuring lunches with previously endorsed electeds and products from women-owned businesses.
Finally, we will announce the five RI NOW PAC-endorsed candidates for statewide office (Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General, General Treasurer, and Secretary of State), and they will share some words with those in attendance as well.
Those who give at the Governor and Lt. Governor levels will be publicly recognized (including PAC to PAC donations), and receive other benefits to be announced soon.
You don't want to miss what will be one of the most exciting, fun, and meaningful events in the spring Rhode Island political scene!
