           Congressman Langevin watches as Doctor Mirza speaks at a press conference

Dear Friends,

On February 28, President Donald Trump laid out his vision for our country. In his first address to Congress, he shared his perspective on where we are and where we should be going.

In the House gallery, we sent a message of our own.

A diverse group of Americans, concerned for the future of our nation, came face-to-face with the President to show him their collective strength. Women, immigrants, people of color, people with disabilities, the LGBTQ community, and different faith groups – they have all faced discrimination, and now are left wondering if their voices will be heard.

We will make sure their voices are heard.

It has been a challenging start to the New Year, but I remain optimistic about the future because in the United States of America, we each have the ability to make a difference, in ways large and small. In public policy, I have always said that it starts with the individual. I try to work in a bipartisan way, and find Republican colleagues to work with on issues like cybersecurity, education and workforce development. That’s a start.

In our communities, even the seemingly simple acts of kindness and generosity can change hearts and minds. Many of the guests in the House gallery that night have lived that first hand, and their contributions to society have served as a reminder that diversity makes America stronger. My guest was Dr. Ehsun Mirza, an immigrant from Pakistan and a leader in our state’s Muslim community. Dr. Mirza is a critical care doctor at Kent Hospital. His compassion at work, and his advocacy in his personal life, has made a tremendous difference for Rhode Island. I look at the work he is doing, at the lives he has saved, and the relationships he has built, and I have faith that we will persevere.

It starts with one person. You, me, Dr. Mirza – we all have the power to effect change. Keep being vocal and have your voice heard by reaching out through my website, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.

            Sincerely,

           Rep. Langevin's Signature

Calling for Committee
As co-founder and co-chair of the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus, I introduced a resolution that would create a bipartisan, bicameral Joint Committee to investigate the Russian election hacks and Russian contact with the Trump campaign and Administration. Rather than launch multiple time-consuming and costly investigations, none of which would encompass the complete scope of Russian activity, I am fighting for a Joint Committee with the power to cut across jurisdictional lines and get to the truth.

Join Me for Lunch!
Never before during my time in public service have I seen constituents more vocal, engaged, and passionate about the issues facing our state and our country. It has been an exciting and inspiring movement to witness, and I hope to continue these productive conversations at my next Lunch with Langevin on Saturday, March 11, from 12 to 2:00 p.m., at the Cowesett Inn in West Warwick. This public forum enables constituents to meet one-on-one with me, ask questions, and share their concerns.
