Description: This event seeks to spotlight the experiences of alumni and former students of color from Lake Oswego schools. “Life After the Bubble” will feature interviews from various students, each sharing distinct cultural experiences and reflections from their time in LO. The objective is not just to provoke thought, but to inspire our community to adjust our racial justice approach, making it more inclusive and centered around LO’s communities of color. The community meeting will incorporate clips from these interviews and will culminate in a facilitated discussion.
