There’s a growing movement taking place in Providence, RI and it can be found in your Twitter and Facebook newsfeeds. A movement reflected by many Rhode Islander’s who have spent countless hours conversing about at The Avery or Hot Club on Thursday evenings. Passionate conversations lamenting over what Rhode Island used to be, or could’ve been.
#ChooseRI is a declaration of love for the Ocean State, made by locals as well as those who choose to be here over anywhere else. It’s a social commentary on the ever-growing “brain drain” that many RI’ers are resentful of. Millennials are leaving, but those who #ChooseRI are staying put.
