Welcome to RIWA (The Rhode Island Women's Association)! The purpose of this organization is to provide a supportive social, recreational and educational network for lesbian women. RIWA is operated by an elected Steering Committee and member participation. Six dances have been scheduled for 2016 plus such activities as picnics, book discussions, and other get-togethers are planned.

The organization solicits a membership fee from women wishing to attend the RIWA dances. If you are a NON-RIWA member, a $ 12.00 guest fee is charged per dance. A RIWA member who has paid her RIWA dues of $ 35.00 can attend all of our six scheduled dances without being charged. The money received pays for a private hall and a DJ. If a live band or special entertainment is hired, additional charges may be applicable if you should decide to attend the special event.

All dances are BYOB and most times a pot-luck is scheduled; however, there are times when the committee votes to provide food. 

We look forward to a wonderful year,

Your Steering Committee Members
