Address 
CategoriesTraining
Other Prevention Education
Description We want to introduce you to our Hate Crime Training and Education Program, the only one of its kind in RI. Our chair is Norman Orodenker, Esq.. Our lead trainer is Tom Palombo, Assistant Attorney General. Our education program is coordinated by Hannah Resseger. The Hate Crime Training and Education Program director, and our contact person, is Dr. Jodi Glass. We believe in collaboration of energy, efforts and resources. We are grateful for the support of the RI Police Chiefís Association. With their support, we conduct trainings with law enforcement throughout the State, including the Municipal, Providence and RI State Police Academies, as well as related community agencies; trainings are focused specifically on becoming familiar with the language and intent of hate crime law, how to identify when a crime might be a hate crime and knowing what to do about it.
RI Public Law Chapter 42-80 created the Rhode Island Commission on Prejudice and Bias in 1994. The RI Commission on Prejudice and Bias is charged with the responsibility of studying and reporting on all forms of prejudice, bias and hatred in RI and to "revise, codify, if possible, all laws relating thereto." The commission is comprised of 17 members representing the state legislature, Attorney Generalís office, state police, community members and others.
"Hate crime" means any crime motivated by bigotry and bias, including, but not limited to threatened, attempted, or completed acts that appear after investigation to have been motivated by racial, religious, ethnic, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression which includes a person's actual or perceived gender, as well as a person's gender identity, gender- related self image, gender-related appearance, or gender-related expression, whether or not that gender identity, gender-related self image, gender-related appearance, or gender-related expression is different from that traditionally associated with the person's sex at birth or disability prejudice.
We are dedicated to training, particularly law enforcement but open to all, regarding how to recognize hate crime and what to do once it is suspected. We are in the process of expanding to schools. There is no charge for trainings.

ProgramArts Apprenticeships

Woonsocket, RI 02895
CategoriesAfter School Programs
Training
Description RiverzEdge Arts Project in Woonsocket, RI is a highly successful prevention and youth development program. All participants who meet program requirements and stay engaged in the program graduate from high school or attain a GED and 98% apply to and gain acceptance to college, even if they had previously dropped out of high school. All RiverzEdge participants are considered to have 1 or more risk factors associated with delinquency and violence. RiverzEdge has received numerous awards and national recognition for changing the outcomes for so many high risk youth from the urban core of Woonsocket, Rhode Island. These awards include receiving The Presidentís Committee on the Arts and Humanities National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award in October 2010. In a White House ceremony, RiverzEdge was recognized as one of the top 15 arts- and humanities-based programs in the country, citing the successful short-term outcomes of participants. First Lady Michelle Obama presented a plaque, along with a cash award from the National Endowment for the Arts to a teen representative of the RiverzEdge program. In 2009, MetLife and After School Alliance also honored RiverzEdge with the MetLife Foundation Afterschool Innovator Award, a national honor and cash prize awarded to only 6 programs nationwide. RiverzEdge is located in Woonsocket RI, home to the largest concentration of youth at high risk for delinquency in Rhode Island. According to RI Kids Count, Woonsocket has the highest rate of child abuse and neglect in RI, at 26.6%, well above the rest of the core urban cities at 17.4% and the state at 11.7%; the highest rate of births to teens at 212.4 per 1,000 teens in RI, as well as the largest percentage of children participating in school breakfast programs at 39%. In the RI Training School, a residential facility serving wayward or delinquent youth under the RI Juvenile Corrective Services Department, children from Woonsocket are dramatically overrepresented. While Woonsocket youth comprise .2% of the RI population, at the training school they account for 19% of students. They also account for 10% of all homeless youth, as reported by parents who list Woonsocket as their last place of residence when they arrive at homeless shelters around the state. Educational outcomes are similarly disproportionate. Woonsocket has the highest rate of school disciplinary actions in the state. Woonsocket 8th graders perform below both the urban core city average and the state average in math and reading. Woonsocket also has the 2nd highest drop out rate in the state, with less than 25% of high school graduates starting college. Woonsocket High School has a 40% drop out rate, with large numbers of adjudicated youth both in and out of the school system. Woonsocket also has among the highest rates of youth and adult unemployment in the state that ranks 3rd in the nation for unemployment. RiverzEdge Arts has demonstrated singular success with a cohort of youth that are at high risk for delinquency. This funding opportunity will enable RiverzEdge and its collaborators to investigate factors associated with their success for the first time. Project researchers will use rigorous methods to narrow the gaps in current knowledge and produce findings that can be confidently shared with other mentoring programs that serve this population.

CategoriesCrisis Intervention
Violence Prevention Education
Description The concept of community mediation has grown rapidly over the course of the past three decades in response to concerns over violence in our society and frustration with our overburdened and expensive judicial system. More than 500 community mediation centers now operate throughout the United States, and today community mediation centers are recognized as vital components of justice in most states. The Community Mediation Center of Rhode Island (CMCRI), founded in 1996, is Rhode Islandís only such center. We are a grass-roots dispute resolution agency committed to the concepts of social justice, collaborative problem solving, building understanding through dialogue, and arriving at non-violent solutions to conflict.


CMCRI provides affordable mediation and dispute resolution services to community residents and organizations. In 2009 CMCRI staff and volunteer mediators intervened in over 646 disputes, both in the community and in the Small Claims Courts, assisting with family and parent-teen conflicts, court-involved juveniles, neighbor-to-neighbor, organizational and workplace disputes, agricultural conflicts, landlord-tenant, human rights cases, and small claims matters. By providing a forum in which parties can meet face to face to discuss their differences, we offer a voluntary, cooperative and constructive way of resolving conflicts and reaching agreements.


CMCRI also provides mediation and conflict resolution training to adults and children in the community and in the schools. In 2009 CMCRI offered 21 mediation and conflict resolution training sessions to over 303 children and adults, representing a large spectrum of races, ages, ethnicities and experiences.


The underlying goal of our work is to build and strengthen individuals, families and communities. Mediation enables individuals to build bridges within diverse populations by providing opportunities to solve disputes peacefully, preserve relationships and address root causes of conflict.

Target AudiencesAnyone experiencing a conflict, or interested in receiving conflict resolution training or workshops (Rhode Island residents).
