Hitting the Rhode
           Congressman Langevin at a town hall meeting

Dear Friends,

I thoroughly enjoy hosting events that bring together the constituents I represent. They provide me the opportunity to engage with members of the community, listen to the thoughts and concerns of my constituents, and deliver updates from Washington, D.C.

During the month of August, I am hosting a series of public forums that will allow you and your neighbors to share what’s on your minds. These forums include town hall meetings on Tuesday, August 8th at Narragansett Town Hall and Tuesday, August 22nd in Council City Chambers at Warwick City Hall, both from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. In addition, I will visit the Cranston Senior Enrichment Center on August 22nd at 10 a.m. with representatives from Social Security and Medicare to discuss senior-related issues.

Your concerns are always my foremost consideration, and your feedback helps shape my work in Washington. This is an opportunity to have a productive conversation about a variety of issues facing Rhode Islanders, from growing jobs and strengthening the economy to protecting Medicare and supporting students.

My office doors are always open, and I encourage you to call or email me if you have feedback about my work. But there is nothing that can replace a direct, face-to-face conversation and personal connection, so I hope you will also take the opportunities this month to join me in person. And I hope you will also take the time to hear the thoughts and opinions of your fellow Second Congressional district residents as we continue to build civic engagement.

Learn more about my town hall meetings and many other issues through my website and blog and follow me on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.

            Sincerely,

           Rep. Langevin's Signature

Full STEAM Ahead
Art and design play a critical role in enhancing skills that are essential to the disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Art fosters innovative thinking and requires students to develop new methods of creative problem solving. The integration of art and design into STEM will give America the edge it needs to compete in the global marketplace, which is why I proudly introduced the STEM to STEAM Act of 2017. This bill would promote the inclusion of art and design in after-school and extracurricular STEM activities. The Rhode Island School of Design has been a pioneer in the STEM to STEAM movement, and I hope other schools will follow its lead so our students become the most creative graduates on the planet.

Protect Our Children
As a co-chair of the Congressional Foster Youth Caucus, I’ve heard terrifying stories about children who are victims of ‘re-homing.’ Re-homing occurs when parents transfer custody of their children outside of the child welfare system, and often their children are placed in dangerous situations. I recently introduced two bills aimed at eliminating this practice: the Protecting Adopted Children Act and the Supporting Adopted Children and Families Act, which both strengthen support services for children and families.
