IT’S A FREE COUNTRY: The Limitations and Responsibilities of Freedom - Friday

, March 22, 2019 at 5:30 p.m.

PLEASE JOIN US for four thought-provoking conversations provided in partnership with Oregon Humanities Conversation Project whose goal is to connect people to ideas and to each other, not to push an agenda or arrive at consensus. Conversation is a powerful medium to invite our community’s diverse perspectives and explore challenging questions. Hope you can join in!!

3: IT’S A FREE COUNTRY: The Limitations and Responsibilities of Freedom

When we think or say “America: land or the brave and free” or “It’s a free country! I can do what I want,” what does it mean to “be free”? This discussion will explore questions on freedom: How do we define, value, and experience freedom personally and in community?

In this conversation Ann Su will explore choices that come with freedom and what are the responsibilities that accompany those choices? How does this concept of “freedom” play out in a diverse, democratic society?

Does everyone have access to freedom in the same way?

In this conversation, Ann Su, a public interest attorney, adjunct assistant professor at Portland State University, and diversity and leadership consultant.

Rockford Grange doors open and soup's on at 5:30 pm. Conversation begins at 6:30 pm.

$5.00 suggested donation for conversation; no one turned away for lack of funds
