Indivisible Rhode Island hosted its second “Better Know a Rhode Island Candidate” event at Westminster Unitarian Church in East Greenwich. Five candidates for office were given time to address the audience and take some questions.

Dwayne Keys is running for Rhode Island House District 9. Keys is a community activist and President of the South Providence Neighborhood Association, Keys is focusing his campaign on improving housing, transportation, and income inequality, among other issues.
“One of the things that my champion, my she-ro, has said about me, [Providence] Councilwoman Mary Kay Harris, ‘You are a voice for the voiceless,'” said Keys. “And I’m not understanding what that means because speaking up, standing up for people, standing up for myself? That’s normal. That’s what you’re supposed to do.”
