Aug 22 from 5:30-7:30pm (U.S. Rubber Lofts, Providence): Toast to Tenacity- Each year, WFRI commemorates the passing of the 19th amendment giving (some) women the right to vote and uses it as an opportunity to share what we are doing to close gender power gaps. This year, we will also be celebrating the kickoff of our 2024-25 Women’s Policy Institute, which teaches women to be grassroots advocacy leaders. Meet our current WPI class and alumni, as well as key volunteers and funders of WFRI’s work. https://secure.qgiv.com/for/womensfundofrhodeisland/event/toast2tenacity/
