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!
Who should represent beautiful South County: a climate denialist who says that God, not human activity, is responsible for climate change? Or a practical, progressive, lifelong Charlestown resident who supports the Green New Deal and protecting Rhode Island from rising seas and deforestation?
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.
