Jim Vincent visited the English class of teachers Jordana Ruggeri and Marcela Garces at Central Falls High School. The class is reading “The Hate U Give” and it has ignited so many quality and in depth discussions about social justice, media injustice and themes of racism, code switching, double consciousness, and the power of words and our environment. Mr. Vincent was invited to talk about his work which prompted many students to be interested in starting a chapter of the NAACP at CFHS.
Hopefully the power of the novel and Mr. Vincent’s message will ignite students to become voices rather than echoes.
Senator Reed’s office is currently recruiting applicants for our Fall and Spring semester internship program. We accept applications from currently-enrolled undergraduate students. Interns in the fall and spring semester usually commit to 10-15 hours per week in either our Cranston or Providence office, and are provided a stipend during their time in our office.
For students who may be studying in Washington, DC, our DC internship coordinator is also currently accepting applications for the fall and spring.
