We are in the midst of a national pushback and dismantling of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) work, and Lake Oswego and Clackamas County are not exempt. While more overt efforts to demonize DEI get more news coverage, campaigns to defund, undermine and/or whitewash DEI are just as pervasive and destructive. This workshop will explore what the gutting of DEI looks like, why it’s so harmful and how we can take action in Lake Oswego and Clackamas County.
