We are concerned citizens working to build the climate movement in Rhode Island. An affiliate of 350.org, we’re fighting for 100% renewable energy, a clean and sustainable earth, and environmental justice for all. Join us!
The results of Rhode Island’s 2020 primary election show a Green Wave crashing onto the State House shores. Fully 13 of CARI’s 18 endorsed climate champions won their races, many against entrenched DINO incumbents.
“Both the costs of an extractive fossil fuel system and the disastrous effects of the climate crisis fall disproportionately on immigrants, low-income communities, and people of color — in other words, on families like mine.”
CARI is confident that Melanie DuPont shares our goals and that her commitment to moving Rhode Island toward a 100% renewable energy future as rapidly as possible will make her an ideal working partner in the senate.
CARI is happy to endorse Leonardo (Lenny) Cioe. Lenny is a career nurse who has been working on the front lines during the current Covid-19 crisis and understands first-hand the threat that this pandemic represents. Yet he also recognizes that the threat of Covid-19 pales in comparison to what we all as Rhode Islanders, Americans, and occupants of this planet face in the climate crisis.
