A neighborhood effort to interrupt racism in Lake Oswego, Oregon

Our Mission is to educate and empower Lake Oswego residents and institutions with the tools to combat racism in all its forms and make LO — and Oregon — a better place to live for residents of all races and ethnicities.

What We Do

Respond to Racism meets monthly, bringing concerned citizens together, including members of local government, news media, and the Lake Oswego School District, to tackle overt and systemic racism in Lake Oswego.
