    Congressman Langevin talks with business owners about how to support a community-based economy

Dear Friends,

I am very fortunate to have an incredible staff. They are smart and dedicated, and work day in and day out to support the people of Rhode Island. Your priorities shape my priorities, and my team works to best represent your interests in Congress. Ultimately, it all comes down to one voice.

Yours.

Feedback from constituents is essential for me to be an effective leader and legislator, and I am always looking for new ways to engage Rhode Islanders. My office is always accessible, and I use my website, social media and this newsletter to keep you informed. But I can never stop improving outreach, and I recently embarked on a new initiative to further involve constituents in their representation.

Starting this month, I am rolling out seven advisory committees made up of business leaders, community groups and constituents with expertise in each area. My advisory committees will focus on the food economy, economic development, veterans, seniors, housing, the arts and diversity issues. These committees will meet to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing each group, and the members will serve as my trusted advisors.

Your voice matters and I hope you will continue to share your ideas with me. To learn more about my work, follow me on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.

            Sincerely,

           Rep. Langevin's Signature

President Obama
President on Cyber
As co-founder and co-chair of the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus, I have been sounding the alarm on cyber threats for nearly a decade. Public hacks and our increasing reliance on technology have improved public awareness, but I was thrilled to hear President Barack Obama tackle this complex issue during his State of the Union address. With the nation as his audience, President Obama laid out a series of proposals, including an information sharing bill, which would strengthen our nation’s cyber defenses. It is time that Congress took this issue seriously and passed comprehensive cybersecurity legislation.

Protecting Our Kids
Foster youth are some of the most at-risk children in our society. As co-chair of the Caucus on Foster Youth, I continue to fight for stability and protection for these young people. I signed on to the Strengthening Child Welfare Response to Trafficking Act to address the link between girls in foster care and sex trafficking and require states to develop child protection plans.
