On Monday, Apr. 29, Respond to Racism and LO for LOve hosted a candidate forum for the upcoming Lake Oswego School Board election. The forum, which was held at Lake Oswego United Church of Christ, focused on the role of school board members in fostering diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in LO schools. The hosts for the evening were RtR co-founder Willie Poinsette and LO for LOve co-founder Amy Waterbury. Participating on the panel were LOSD board candidates Kelly Calabria, Kristin Aird, and incumbent John Wallin. The moderators for the evening were Lakeridge High School members Mya Gordon and Anna-Marie Guenther. Listen to the Forum here (audio courtesy of RTR steering committee member Gene Forte).
