DARE brunch tomorrow

Solidarity Forever Direct Action for Rights and Equality will honor Senate Majority Leader Teresa Paiva Weed, Rep. Joe Almeida, Sen. Harold Metts, and Councilman Kevin Jackson at a brunch tomorrow morning.

It’ll run from 1000am to 100pm at their offices at 340 Lockwood St. in Providence. (Right by Classical and Central.)

The state officials were instrumental in moving the revocation of mandatory minimum sentences for certain drug crimes last year. The Governor vetoed the bill, but we’re hopeful that it’ll pass again this year, and that any veto would be overridden. Kevin Jackson’s been a frequent DARE ally, especially in pushing for enforcement of the city’s local hiring ordinance.
