Speaking Across Difference: A House Divided - But Civil - In This Presidential Election

Nov 7, 2016

Over the last few months we’ve brought you our series “Speaking Across Difference,” the stories of Rhode Islanders bridging divides of religion, socio-economic status and more.

On the day before the election, we bring you the story of a married couple who find themselves on opposite sides of the aisle.

Dawn Casey-Rowe and her husband Walter Rowe have been married 14 years. They met through a shared love of martial arts. Walter is a military veteran now owns and operates two kickboxing gyms in Rhode Island. Dawn is a writer and a teacher in Lincoln. They spoke with Rhode Island Public Radio’s John Bender in the backyard of their North Scituate home.
