House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has scheduled two stops in Rhode Island to raise money for congressional Democrats and lead a forum on women’s issues.
The California Democrat will be at the Carnegie Abbey Club in Portsmouth Sunday evening for a fundraising cocktail reception benefiting the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Guests are being asked to contribute at least $1,000 a person and up to $30,800 per couple.
Former Rhode Island Congressman Patrick Kennedy and state General Treasurer Gina Raimondo will host the reception, and Congressmen David Cicilline and James Langevin are scheduled to attend.
Pelosi will also lead a forum on health and work force issues affecting women Monday morning in Providence at the Rhode Island Foundation in Union Station. The event is closed to the public.
