At the start of 2020, a group of organizers from frontline communities, labor unions, Indigenous tribes, environmental justice campaigns, youth groups, and racial justice organizations came together to envision how to address the overlapping crises we are facing here in Rhode Island. Since then, Renew has grown into a truly unprecedented multi-racial, regional coalition with more than 150 organizations across the six New England states.
These grassroots leaders spent a year developing detailed plans for how New England can address mass unemployment, racial injustice, and the climate crisis. The result was a series of community-driven policies and programs to ensure that all Rhode Islanders have affordable housing and food, and clean air to breathe and water to drink.
