Opportunities abound to convince your two legislators to address the huge revenue shortfall with substantial revenues! But the legislators need to hear from you to have the back bone support to take action in a meaningful way. You can make a difference by signing up to do any one or all of the three things below. If you’re not available to table at Norman Music Fest, Phone Bank to Save Our State, and/or weigh anchor at one of our Capitol May Days, please remember, we still need you sharing the info from Together Oklahoma Facebook and Twitter and checking in with your fellow district teammates in Slack to find out who is showing up on your behalf. Go team!
Norman Music Fest, Phone Banking, and Capitol Days!
Phone Banking to Save Our State!
When it comes to convincing the legislators to pass a better budget, emails and social media aren’t going to cut it. That is why we are going to take a little time to call all TOK members to let them know that we need them. On Thursday, April 27th and Saturday, April 29th we will have phone banks in both OKC and Tulsa to call our fellow Oklahomans and connect them to the SOS voicemail for legislators.
OKC Phone Bank sign up poll for Thursday, April 27th and Saturday, April 29th
Tulsa Phone Bank sign up poll for Thursday, April 27th and Saturday, April 29th
Once you sign up we will follow up with details about where we’ll be meeting for the phone bank. If you can’t be there in person, let me know in Slack and we will find another way for you to be involved in the effort!
Capitol May Days
Together Oklahoma leaders will join the #SaveOurStateOK Coalition for days the Capitol in May. Sign up here to take a shift! We’ll help orient advocates for each of the days and times listed on this poll. There is NO reason to trust that the legislature will put out a good budget without knowing that their own constituents insist that #CutsHaveConsequences. The opponents of the Save Our State budget have highly paid lobbyists but we have better data and more people power. Sign up for your shift AND/OR convince someone you know to sign up on behalf of both of you. We’ll give you all the support you need to say “we won’t tolerate another budget that tears down our communities!” saveourstateok.org
TOK Norman at NMF
We will have a table at Norman Music Festival April 28-29. We will be handing out information about Together Oklahoma as well as selling water bottles, stickers and magnets. Our location will be in the Gray Street Lot, across the street from the Gray Owl. Ideally we’ll have three people for each shift, two to handle the table and one to roam the crowd handing out info sheets and sending people our way if they’re interested. Sign up to join us for a couple hours right here!
There are so many ways to be involved and Oklahoma needs you! Thank you for your time and efforts and I hope to see you soon.
