Mary Gordon to Speak in Eugene

26 Aug 2019

90by30 is excited to welcome Roots of Empathy founder and president Mary Gordon back to Eugene for a special presentation on Thursday, August 29. Mary is here to help celebrate the success of rural Lane County's pilot year of her groundbreaking program to teach children empathy and compassion through interactions with an infant. Next year, classrooms in all seven regions of the county, including Eugene and Springfield, will join the ROE pilot.

The presentation on "Viewing the Classroom Climate Through the Lens of Attachment-Aware and Trauma-Informed Teaching" begins at 10:30 a.m. at Prairie Mountain School (5305 Royal Ave. in Eugene). This is a free event, but space is limited and seats are filling up quickly, so please RSVP here if you plan to attend.

We feel lucky to have Roots of Empathy in Lane County - but this community-driven program only happens because of our volunteers! Classrooms in 90by30's rural and metro regions are still looking for a few more families to participate. Visit the Roots of Empathy website to learn more, or email SaraL@90by30.com to get involved.
