LGO MLK Talk at Castlemont HS in Oakland with Shoe Palace
LGO had the opportunity to team up with Shoe Palace to speak with 12 student athletes from Castlemont High School. The session was based around MLK and the importance to dream big, bring positive change and follow your passion in life. Each student wrote a letter to Mayor Libby Schaaf about what they'd like to change in the city of Oakland. The future is BRIGHT.
