When I was growing up, I loved going exploring the shoreline and getting sprayed by the waves. I want to make sure we protect and expand public access to the shoreline in RI because our whole community should enjoy it—whether you’re swimming, fishing, or making a living or a home here.

Action Alert: We need strong testimony to keep momentum going on our 2024 shoreline access bills! You can:

– Use this form to contact your state representatives and senators: https://actionnetwork.org/letters/support-shoreline-access-bills-s-2641-s-2634-s-2185/

– Send Senate testimony to slegislation@rilegislature.gov and include the bill number in the subject line

– Email me if you’d like to testify in person; we can send you updates when the hearings are scheduled.

Other Initiatives in 2024:

  • Working with the Attorney General and CRMC on guidelines for legal and illegal signage on rights-of-way leading to the water. 
  • Ensuring that CRMC has adequate funding to enforce signage rules and make sure that public rights of way are clearly marked and accessible. We need YOUR help to advocate for this during the state budget process!
