Advocates for the state's homeless carried life-size powder blue cutouts representing the men, women and children without shelter in the Ocean State.
As Rhode Island Gov. Dan McKee asked the crowd to spitball issues and suggestions for the state's 10-year plan, the cutouts were stacked neatly against a wall, and the men and women holding them gathered around Health and Human Services Secretary Womazetta Jones.
