The State of Rhode Island primary elections will take place on September 13, 2022, although early voting has begun. Members of SEEJ ask that you keep the justice issues that are so important to our community in mind when casting your ballot. In some ways the most important elections are the lowest profile ones; those for school committee, town council, attorney general, and secretary of state among many others. Many organizations work to define the issues important to them and then identify candidates that will work to advance those priorities. Below are links to three organizations that have websites with political endorsements, although there are many more online for your information. Happy Voting! SEEJ

Workers rights advocacy: AFSCME RI Council 94 (union issues)

Educational issues on the state and local level: National Education Association RI (NEARI)

Environmental issues in RI:  Climate Action RI (CARI)
