Finding Roger Williams

The Roger Williams Initiative was conceived of and funded by generous philanthropists Letitia and John Carter. Their mission was to establish a sense of place, awareness, and pride for all Rhode Islanders by providing resources about Rhode Island's founder, Roger Williams, and his teachings. The interactive resources materials were designed and created by Nami Studios, with additional resources curated by the project team of Ted Widmer, Theresa Moore, Nami Studios, and the contributions and support of many partners. The Initiative is managed by the Rhode Island Foundation.

“Rhode Island founder Roger Williams was a remarkable man. He set the standard for separation of church and state that the nation adopted, and his vision and determination built the “lively experiment” that was and is Rhode Island. Many of his values are more relevant than ever.”
