Mark your calendars.
We are thrilled to share that the Lake Oswego Public Library is partnering with Respond to Racism for the Library’s December First Friday Film Discussion Group. The Library's Film Discussion Group meets monthly at the Lake Theater & Café, and the Library plans to partner with Respond to Racism for these events on a semi-regular basis. This partnership is an opportunity to bring community members together to view and discuss movies and documentaries that raise awareness about historical and present-day racism. It's also an opportunity to encourage dialogue about how to respond to racism and to build and strengthen ties among community members.
The December Film Discussion Group will be held December 6th. Doors open at 1:30 and the movie starts at 2pm at the Lake Theater & Café. Admission is free. We’ll be showing and discussing “Priced Out - 15 Years of Gentrification in Portland, Oregon”. This documentary explores the complexities and contradictions of gentrification and life after the era of "the ghetto." It powerfully illustrates how government policies and market forces combine to destroy and rebuild neighborhoods. Some embrace new investment at first, but few are left standing when new money moves in and old residents find themselves priced out. Winner of the Best Feature Film Award at the New Urbanism Film Festival.
Hope to see some of you there!
