Blog about Rhode Island  

        Rhode Island's Future (www.rifuture.org) is a blog about Rhode Island politics and culture, written by Rhode Island residents. While we all have different political views and opinions, we generally consider ourselves to be progressives. The mission of the RIFuture.org is to foster healthy debate and discussion on the important issues facing the Ocean State - lack of good jobs, affordable health care, failing schools, rising property taxes - and to work towards common solutions. Democracy means not only engaging government but also changing it.
