MISSION & VISION: Our mission is to return government to the people by opposing special interest public policy and advancing proven free-market solutions that can transform lives through economic competitiveness, educational opportunity and individual freedom. Our vision is to see Rhode Island as a destination of choice to raise a family and build a career, with a thriving business climate, abundant jobs, and a world-class education system.


STATE THINK TANK: As the only free-enterprise public policy “think tank” in the state, our Center for Freedom provides timely research and analysis on important issues in RI, and is a proud member of the State Policy Network, working closely with over 60 other state-based affiliates.

CHANGING LIVES: Our plan is to relentlessly promote free-market solutions to solve the critical economic and educational issues we face at the state and local levels, so as to return prosperity to our Rhode Island citizens … and to transform lives for the better!

COALITION BUILDING: Our Center hosts regular meetings attended by key reform and taxpayer advocacy groups in the state. These meetings provide an important forum where information is shared and where concepts for cooperative outreach and grassroots advocacy are hatched.
