Welcome to The World Affairs Council of Rhode Island

The World Affairs Council of Rhode Island is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting knowledge, awareness, and understanding of the world and its people, cultures, and events.

Our mission is to give our members first hand accounts and insights about issues that transcend our borders, and a community for exchanging ideas and meeting other globally minded people.

For 80 years, WACRI has brought the world to Rhode Island through our monthly guest speaker and Global Discussions programs, by hosting international visitors, and by promoting learning and education about world affairs.

We invite you to join WACRI, and become a part of our community of globally oriented citizens.
