    I work in community health and making connections enriches both my work and my life, but since this election it’s become urgent necessity. The ‘events’ section in RI Future comes at exactly the right time. This turn of the wheel we have instant communication, we’ll see if enough of us are wise enough to sort out what matters, what threatens our common good, who are our allies in each particular battle.

    Transformational Solidarity? Have you seen his appointments? Do you think what he is spewing is bluster?

    To stop-and-frisk and murder Black people?
    To ban abortion?
    To build a wall on the border?
    To take away the rights of gays and transgendered people?

    Let’s fight him.
