Dear Friends,

Thank you for joining me virtually at the eleventh annual Rhode Island Energy, Environment & Oceans Leaders Day. Despite the challenges this year has posed, we were able to adapt to the circumstances and come together for an inspiring and successful event. Our audience, speakers, and panelists contributed to a dialogue on emerging policy solutions, and I greatly appreciate the passion and expertise each of you brought to the table.

This year, we welcomed guests with backgrounds in environmental activism, federal policymaking, and international climate strategy. The conversations we had can be the start of greater change, and though the environmental and energy challenges facing our nation and state are daunting, we can find a path forward together. If I can support your efforts in any way, please be in touch with my office. I will do everything I can to help you protect our environment and transition Rhode Island to a clean energy economy.

You can watch all the pre-recorded videos from EEO day on our YouTube channel below.

Again, thank you for joining us and for making this virtual event a success. I’m already looking forward to next year.


Senator Sheldon Whitehouse

U.S. Senator from Rhode Island, the Ocean State.
