In addition to obtaining information about Rhode Island's history, culture, economics and politics, leaders in the program will share their experiences and learn from each other. This process will create a powerful, committed, diverse network of graduates who have taken the time to understand and know each other. This network is critical and necessary if the shared goals of economic and social justice for all our citizens are to be achieved.
