2017 Community Debate


The Community Debate is the Rhode Island Urban Debate League’s  unique mission-driven fundraiser. Community members from around the state team up with an urban high schooler to match wits in short, snappy debate rounds. And YOU can join in as a debater, judge or cheerleader – we’ll show you how. Get your ticket here before they run out.

Past event participants have included Congressman Cicilline, Secretary Gorbea, State Senators, State Representatives, Providence City Council Members, attorneys, business and non-profit leaders, educators, parents, activists, and urban debate alumni.

Will YOU be this year’s Community Debate champion?
