As our children and grandchildren head back to school over the next week, I am proud of the strides we have made in such a short time! We met as a group this week and had the opportunity to refocus, regroup, and plan our next steps. We have been busy speaking with legislators, reporters, and school committees. The more we speak out, the more we are noticed both here in RI and throughout the country! Please continue to share our mission, contact your legislators, and don’t forget to sign & share the petition. People are watching and listening. Have a great week, We can’t wait to see all those first day of school photos on facebook!
