Join us at our next meeting!
Respond to Racism meets monthly, bringing concerned citizens together (along with members of local government, news media, and the LO School District, among others) to tackle overt and systemic racism in Lake Oswego. Please join us for our next meeting:
Monday April 6, 2020
As we all do our part during this health crisis to flatten the curve by social distancing we know that this impacts our community. The COVID-19 pandemic has fueled the rise of racism toward the Asian community. Please join our ONLINE discussion on the current CoronaVirus and the rise in racism across the nation and also within our community. We will conclude our discussion with tools you can use in the role of an ally.
In addition, there are several steps that you can take to reduce your chances of exposure and to protect others:
Stay home if you are sick.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
Clean and disinfect surfaces that are often touched.
