The Issues

Kerwin will be a strong voice for the working class community and her platform includes reforming Providence’s often criticized tax incentives, which allow large establishments such as Providence Place Mall and Brown University to avoid paying proportional taxes, resulting in an unfair burden on Providence residents.


Kerwin, who supports the Community Safety Act (CSA), is particularly interested in the implementation of and research regarding the CSA. She remains concerned about the implementation of the resolutions and the continued disproportionate amount of arrests of people of color. Kerwin is committed to utilizing her dynamic grassroots organizing knowledge to build a comprehensive strategy for community safety that serves Providence effectively.
