RILPAC supports New Leadership in the General Assembly

Published

In 2021, our General Assembly is set to be the most racially and gender diverse it has ever been. Nevertheless, unless leadership in both chambers reflects that diversity then these achievements will be in vain.


The Rhode Island Latino Political Action Committee (RILPAC) supports Senator Gayle Goldin in her potential bid to be Senate President. As part of RILPAC’s commitment to supporting more representative, leadership in the General Assembly, Senator Goldin’s work and leadership around pay equity and family protection have been pivotal to our state. We believe that her leadership as Senate President will bring about additional opportunities and access for others to be part of leadership positions that they deserve.

In 2021, our General Assembly is set to be the most racially and gender diverse it has ever been. Nevertheless, unless leadership in both chambers reflects that diversity then these achievements will be in vain. We strongly believe that opportunities to lead Committees and other leadership positions should be afforded to General Assembly members who are qualified and equitably represent the Rhode Island population. We further believe that our General Assembly suffers from unchanging leadership, and it is time for the State to start changing that.
