Peddling Civil Rights

Rick Harris

Rick Harris, executive director of the NASW Rhode Island Chapter, pauses in front of the Capitol building in Washington this summer during his bicycle tour on behalf of marriage equality. For the past four summers, Harris has used the trip to collect signatures for a proclamation that supports same-gender marriage equality. His latest tour logged 1,200 miles in 15 days and boosted his signature count to more than 1,900.
