In honor of a Lake Oswego trailblazer, the social justice organization is starting a scholarship in her memory. 

Respond to Racism is seeking donations for its new student scholarship program that honors a Lake Oswego trailblazer.

The scholarship pays tribute to Gloria Brown, who died in 2021. Brown was the first Black woman to achieve the rank of forest supervisor with the U.S. Forest Service. Throughout her career, she received many awards for mediating conflicts between the government and environmentalists. Brown was also a longtime participant and member of Respond to Racism.
