Providence, RI – The RI Center for Freedom & Prosperity today announced the launch of a new women’s initiative, designed to attract moderate and conservative women who do not feel that the state’s progressive-left groups speak for them.
The mission of the new group, RI Women for Freedom & Prosperity, is to empower and give voice to the silent majority of pro-liberty women in our state; to be heard and to effectively become involved our state’s political process and in society by providing them with the information, education & training, and motivation to confidently engage in civil public discourse and to become a trusted leader in the civic and business arenas.
“I have had so many women approach me over the years who appreciate the work of our Center, but still feel that an organized counter-balance to our state’s progressive women’s groups is needed,” commented Mike Stenhouse, the Center’s CEO. “So, we put together a great leadership team and a program that women will truly appreciate.”
RI Women for Freedom is currently accepting memberships at just $10 per year and is expected to soon engage in important issue debates and to announce its initial training and educational events.
One focus of the new group is to provide the ‘other side’ of the debate in many of the important policy and societal issues that arise … by representing the views of mainstream women … and to do so in a bold, yet civil and respectful manner.
The women’s group executive committee is headed by Susan Wynne, a long-time advocate in the state and former President of the RI Tea Party. “Our goal is to give voice to the silent majority of moderate and conservative women in our state as a common-sense contrast to the extreme-left views pushed up at the statehouse,” said Wynne.
From its RIWomenForFreedom.org website, the group has already enlisted a broad diversity of women supporters and members who do not view themselves as victims in need of special protections, as they are often portrayed by far-left women’s groups.
