Following up on last week's marijuana related assault, RIOC and RIRA have set up a community meeting for tomorrow evening. With notice so short, the RI Parents' Network is offering alternatives for anyone who can't attend.

The group's leaders have this to say.

"There will be a public meeting on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at 7pm, the Public Safety Committee along with RIOC and the Public Safety Department will be holding a Public Forum to discuss the January 12 incident. However, I can imagine that many of you wouldn't be able to attend the meeting but also have concerns with the issue and would like to convey your concerns. Rachel has kindly created a online petition that in hopes of gaining signatures to show the concern of the parents, even those who may not be able to attend the meeting:

"In addition to that, we have also created a survey to collect your experience and concerns in more detail. If you have encountered issues with second hand marijuana and would like to communicate it with PSD, please fill out the following survey and we will submit them to PSD and RIOC (and possibly have them work with building management offices too):

"(The survey will not collect your name or email address, therefore all the stories will remain anonymous)

"Please forward/share the petition and survey on your Facebook/Twitter pages so that we can reach as many people as possible. Let's work together to have our voice heard, so PSD can put forward more actions to protect the health of our families and children. Thanks very much for  your help!"
