Exploring freedom in the USA
Many of us might remember when we were young we would respond to a behavior correction with "I can do whatever I want, it's a free country."

Through Oregon Humanities the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center has invited Ann Su to facilitate a Conversation Project titled "It's a Free Country: Exploring Freedom." In this conversation she will discuss what it means to be free. The group will learn how we define, value and experience freedom personally and in our community. We will ponder the question of whether everyone in a democratic society has access to freedom, and discuss how with freedom comes choices and responsibilities. Ann Su is providing a great opportunity to explore the limitations and responsibilities of freedom. Sign up today for the free conversation to be held on Wednesday, Aug. 28 from 5 to 6:30 p.m.
