This is a panel discussion on the upcoming Fair Chance bill, legislation that would help formerly incarcerated people qualify for professional licenses which have been denied to them because of prior criminal records, no matter how old the record. Come hear about this bill and find out how you can help in enacting fair employment practices for previously incarcerated people. Just show up, or let Meg Carroll know you wish to come by emailing her at megcarrollthree@gmail.com.

Fashion Icons from Marie Antoinette to Lady Gaga @ East Greenwich Free Libary
Feb 22 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Fashion historian Kip Brott answers the question: What’s a Fashion Icon, Anyway?

Legendary “fashion icons” have sparked admiration, emulation, and sometimes even outrage! Join us as we learn more about their remarkable lives and explore how personal style, fashion, culture, and history are dynamically interrelated. Kip will take us down the runway from 18th century France with Marie Antoinette, the last Queen before the French Revolution – to Lady Gaga, modern-day pop sensation extraordinaire.

Kip Brott, who earned his BA and MA degrees in art history from UCLA, is a lifelong fashion enthusiast.

Discussing Mental Health – ASAPP @ Swift Community Center
Feb 26 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

On Wednesday, February 26, 2020, from 6:30-8:30 PM, the Swift Community Center will be the site for Discussing Mental Health-ASAPP.

At a time when stress, anxiety, depression, gun violence, vaping, substance use and peer dynamics negatively impact our nation’s youth, listening to those most affected is essential. Students from the East Greenwich High School’s ASAPP Program will be on hand to offer insight, steps towards solutions, and ways to help remove the stigma that often accompanies mental health concerns.

In addition, Discussing Mental Health-ASAPP will also feature presentations from the URI School of Pharmacy and other local experts. If you desire more information regarding this initiative please contact Bob Houghtaling at 401-230-2246 or rhoughtaling2@verizon.net.
