State government makes most of the laws that affect our lives. In Rhode Island, the most powerful branch of state government is the legislature, called the General Assembly: our state senators and state representatives. This website exists to demystify the General Assembly and empower you to call your representatives up and let them know what kind of state you want to live in!

You have the most influence over the state senator and state representative who represent you! You can find out who they are on the RI Department of State website, and you can learn even more about them here.



Stay tuned for our forthcoming podcast with news and commentary on what the General Assembly is up to and how you can get involved.
