June 2019 On The GoWWW.LOACC.INFOFollow us - Lake Oswego Adult Community Center ACCOn the Go in LO July / August 2019 Crime & Punishment in OregOn From prisons and youth correctional facilities to schools and county jails, we’re surrounded by institutions that punish. But why do we punish? Why is punishment sometimes sanctioned by the state? Critics of the “prison industrial complex” argue that our methods and scale of punishment are informed by profit, while tough-on-crime policy-makers believe that punishment must be meaningful enough to prevent repeated crimes and ensure public safety. Are there other ways to punish that may be more effective, reasonable, or desirable? This is the focus of “Crime and Punishment in Oregon,” a free conversation with Monica Mueller. 19555 10-11:30a Tu 7/9 it’s a Free COuntry: exPlOring FreedOm Wednesday, august 28 You’ve heard the expression “It’s a free country! I can do what I want,” but what does it mean to “be free”? In this conversation with Ann Su hear how we define value and experience freedom personally in our community and how everyone can have access to freedom in a democratic society. Participants will discuss different questions: Does everyone have access to freedom the same way? What choices come with freedom and what are the responsibilities that accompany those choices? Join us as we explore the limitations and responsibilities of freedom. 19516 5-6:30p W 8/28 the living Well talk series kiCk-OFF event OWning Our stOries & living Our truth With authOr Cheryl strayed Hear a voice of inspiration as New York Times bestselling author of Wild, Tiny Beautiful Things, Brave Enough and Torch, Cheryl Strayed, shares her courageous life story about what she has learned, what she knows now, and its evolution into global success.
