Summit inspires communities to embrace diversity, equity and inclusion
After a year of planning, the first Multi-City Equity Summit was held Saturday at Lake Oswego High School.
Local school officials, mayors, city councilors, state politicians, emergency responders and community members from five local communities were all in attendance.
Almost 400 strong, attendees spent the day learning how to create communities that embrace diversity, equity and inclusion.
A common plea from many in attendance was the need to educate others in the community in an effort to break the cycle of racism, discrimination and exclusion that happens all too often.
Here are just a few of the images taken from at today's summit. Be sure to pick up a copy of this week's Lake Oswego Review, West Linn Tidings, The Times - serving Tigard and Tualtin, or Wilsonville Spokesman for a complete story and more photos from the event.
