Could the key to a healthier, more-prosperous Rhode Island be as simple as a change in perspective? Many of us believe so. If the top priority… the first question… the lynch pin… of every policy discussion in the Ocean State were, “How will this affect our families?,” instead of, “Will this disrupt the way government insiders do business?,” a whole new vista of possibilities would arise.
Kicking off an effort to begin changing the perspective of Rhode Island’s movers and decision makers, the Family Prosperity Initiative of Rhode Island is hosting a forum on the afternoon of Tuesday, January 17. During the free event, national and local experts will address the findings of a recent report about the Ocean State’s ranking of 48 among states on the Family Prosperity Index and begin to apply the lessons to the state’s policy environment and civic culture. (Lunch will be served.)
