The governor of Rhode Island hopes the state’s history as a beacon of tolerance and religious liberty will draw new business opportunities to the state.
“Young people want to live in a place that’s tolerant and diverse and inclusive,” Gov. Gina Raimondo said recently during a visit to the Roger Williams National Memorial in Providence. “This is part of who we are. It’s not a fad or something temporary. It’s ingrained in who we are as Rhode Islanders.”
