Charlestown's Mike Downey to receive justice award

RI labor leader and Charlestown neighbor Mike Downey

Jobs With Justice is scrappy, but one of the most important and effective activist organizations in Rhode Island.  The campaign they helped lead in support of a living wage ordinance in Providence is one of the reasons I got involved in politics here and decided to run for City Council a decade ago.
Their 16th Anniversary Awards Dinner is tomorrow, Wednesday, at the Cranston Portuguese Club from 6-9pm — it would be great to see all of you there.
