The legislative session has begun!
Do you want to better understand how things work at the State Capitol and how you can make a difference? You can download the OK Policy 2016 Legislative Primer HERE.
You can also Join Oklahoma Policy Institute next Thursday, Feb. 11th for our first 2016 Webinar on Oklahoma Advocacy and the Legislative Process. Outreach and Advocacy Specialist Kara-Joy McKee and Legislative Liaison Damario Solomon-Simmons will give an overview of the legislative process, highlight best practices for being an effective advocate, and answer questions. The free webinar will benefit anyone whether or not you already have experience as an advocate and participant in the Oklahoma political process. Participation is limited, so be sure to sign up now to reserve your spot!
We’re working to make the weight of each person’s responsibility a little lighter, more effective, and more efficient. The Together Oklahoma coalition has begun working as teams through chapters in Tulsa and OKC. We’re expanding those efforts to other areas of Oklahoma soon. If you aren’t already involved sign up HERE here and now!

Thanks to all of you who joined our TOK State of the State Virtual Watch Party on Slack yesterday. We’ll do more of those as the debate heats up.
Thanks again to all of you who attended the State Budget Summit. If you were there we hope you’ve sent us feedback via THIS survey. If you missed it, we’ll post video from the event soon.
Thanks again and I hope you’ll stay curious about how we can make Oklahoma a better home for all!
