What we're about

This is a bimonthly Zoom meeting group to explore and study the life and work of Roger Williams. We meet the second Thursdays and fourth Thursdays of the month. Today, few people know anything Roger Williams. The Roger Williams Educational Foundation is new educational organization. We hope to be incorporates soon. We need to understand and appreciate the incredible life and work of RW. He was a theologian, a politician, and trading post operator. The more know we about RW, the better we would all feel about the creation of our "Lively Experiment", Rhode Island.
