Trinice Holden, Executive Director for the Youth Restoration Project, has been named to the 2020-2021 Class of Women’s Policy Institute Fellows, a program of the Women’s Fund of Rhode Island. WPI will provide intensive advocacy and leadership training to women and those who identify as female, who are poised to play a greater role in advocating for public policy that improves the quality of life for women and girls in Rhode Island. Over the course of nine months, Trinice will participate in several retreats, a team policy project, frequent meetings, and other activities that provide a “learning while doing” experience.
“This fellowship with WPI offers me the opportunity to take YRP’s work to a place where restorative practices can play a more impactful role in public policy. We can’t just talk about “systemic.” I want to be far more hands-on working with women and girls to bring about actionable results for them and those that come after them.
Most recently, WPI fellows successfully advocated for paid family leave and pregnancy accommodations in the workplace. I’m so excited. ”
