5/25/2022 MEDIA ADVISORY: RI Legislative Black and Latino Caucus to hold press conference on gun legislation tomorrow
STATE HOUSE – The RI Legislative Black and Latino Caucus, chaired by Rep. Karen Alzate (D-Dist. 60, Pawtucket), will be holding a press conference tomorrow, May 26 at 3 p.m. on the State House steps (Gaspee Street side) to urge the passage of gun protection bills in the General Assembly.

“Once again, senseless carnage is all over our screens and newspapers and more young innocent lives have been robbed of the chance to grow up.  We are sickened to relive these horrific and preventable tragedies over and over and the time for action can no longer be delayed.  We will be calling on our fellow members of the General Assembly to pass the common sense gun protection laws that will protect our children and residents from the vile and reprehensible acts recently experienced in Texas and Buffalo,” said Chairwoman Alzate.

The Rhode Island Legislative Black and Latino Caucus represents and advocates for the interests of disadvantaged people throughout the State of Rhode Island. It seeks to increase a diverse participation and representation in all levels of government. The goal is to close, and ultimately to eliminate, disparities that still exist between white and non-white Americans in every aspect of life.
