Tell Your State Legislators: Lift Children out of Deep Poverty

Parents and two kids walking hand in hand

The Raising RI Coalition is comprised of more than 50 organizations dedicated to lifting children out of poverty in Rhode Island.

Rhode Island Works, the state’s Cash Assistance Program, serves as a vital safety net for the most vulnerable children and families in our state and is in need of reform. The time to ACT is NOW!

Tell your legislators to support H7686/S2337 to improve the RI Works program and uplift our state's most vulnerable children out of deep poverty.

Help advocate for:

  1. Annual Cost-of-Living Adjustment: Help families keep pace with rising expenses by increasing the monthly benefit to 50% of the federal poverty level.

  2. End Full Family Sanctions: Protect families from losing vital aid, prioritizing children's welfare.

  3. Restore Support for Legal Permanent Residents: Ensure every child gets essential assistance, by eliminating the 5-year wait.
