Leadership Rhode Island, The Providence Journal and Rhode Island College present, in its sixth year, the two-time award winning forum by the RI Press Association for community outreach - Publick Occurrences.
"A civil society is essential to the workings of a democracy . This series of public policy discussions not only informed participants but also challenged them to become more involved in the process. The organizers cleverly used technology in their gatherings to broaden the process. It is encouraging to see how this organization values the importance of civil discourse." - Award Judges from The Idaho Press Club, 2014.
