A Call to Action

Nicholas Alahverdian and Representative Ray Hull, along with Reps. John Lombardi, David Bennett, and James McLoughlin have introduced legislation that would create the Emergency Oversight Committee on DCYF. Read the bill.

For far too long, DCYF has been an agency perpetually steeped in chaos and pandemonium. Kids are dying more than ever in the Raimondo-era DCYF. It’s time for the General Assembly to take the lead on DCYF reform — and it begins with your help.

We need you to call your state representative and ask them to support H 7639 to create the commission.

Call Speaker Mattiello at 401-222-2466 or email him at and voice your support for H 7639 to protect Rhode Island’s children today and tomorrow.

The Orphan Chronicles began as a set of personal memoirs that emerged out of a single autobiography.  When Nicholas Alahverdian realized that it was not a sustainable narrative to go from documenting his travails as an orphan to celebrating his academic successes as a Harvard student in a linear method, his colleagues and assistants began to encourage him to tear down the walls of archetypal autobiographical writing. Thus, there will be several volumes, the first of which, Dreading and Hoping All, is now in print.
