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.
For 80 years, WACRI has brought the world to Rhode Island. Our monthly speaker series and International Visitors Program offer our members a broad perspective on our world and its people.
Our mission is to give our members first hand accounts and insights about issues that effect us locally, as well as those that transcend our borders. We foster a community of globally minded people, exchanging ideas in a civil and meaningful way while enjoying unique venues and sharing local culinary experiences.
We invite you to join WACRI, and become a part of our community of globally oriented citizens.
In compliance with the CDC and RI Department of Health guidelines, we have suspended all of our programs until the situation improves. We will keep you posted with any changes.
