The Rhode Island General Election is November 3rd
The Womxn Project is a 501(c)4 which means we don’t endorse. However there is a lot we do that relates directly to the election through education and calls to action across the state, while being COVID-safe.
1. Have questions about voting?
The 211 voter assistance hotline launched in August so dial 2-1-1.
2. If voting by mail, you can also return your ballot to a local board of canvassers office directly, or drop it off at ANY of the statewide Elections Drop-Box locations.
3. Early in-person voting is available everywhere in RI.

The Womxn Project has been projecting in cities and towns across our state to raise awareness and push for people to take action to advance racial, reproductive, disability, economic, immigrant and LGBTQIA+ justice.
II. Election 2020 Panel Discussion Series
We believe we can learn from grassroots organizations and leaders everywhere which is why we formed a series of exciting dialogues spanning the United States around the issues coming up in the elections. We thank the amazing womxn, men and non-binary folx who join us and shared their unique relationship to running or organizing to make the US more inclusive, intersectional, and the voice of ALL the people affected by policy.
