Kick Off Rally for Yes on 3

Rhode Islanders, join the cause this morning with YESon3RI and the Audobon Society of Rhode Island as they host a kickoff rally for Yes on 3.  Not aware of the November ballot decision?

The $47.3 million Green Economy and Clean Water bond on November’s ballot gives voters the opportunity to support a state-wide investment that builds on Rhode Island’s strengths: a healthy Narragansett Bay, safe drinking water for all, a robust network of bikeways and recreational facilities, revitalized industrial spaces, working farms, open spaces for generations to enjoy, and protection against flooding and storm events.

When:  Today, October 12th at 10 AM

Where: Waterplace Park Amphitheatre, Providence, RI
