To all who were able to join us for our 42nd Annual Meeting on November 1st, Thank You! It was a wonderful evening with almost 300 Common Cause supporters in attendance. We were thrilled to make Rev. James C. Miller the latest John Gardner Fellow for his lifetime of work on behalf of Common Cause issues. Additionally, we awarded the Excellence in Public Service Award to Mayor Angel Taveras for his work on redistricting and electoral reform.
In addition to the awards, we raffled off lunch with leading Rhode Island academics, including Michael Yelnosky, Corey Brettschneider, Carl Bogus, and Maureen Moakley as a prelude to the keynote lecture. The evening concluded with a thought provoking talk by Professor Lawrence Lessig of Harvard Law School. If you missed his presentation, you can watch a replay of it here.
Common Cause Rhode island thanks all who attended and made the evening possible.
