It’s been a big year. Here’s what you accomplished.

It’s been a year of big things for Together Oklahoma. From adding new chapters to growing our membership, Together Oklahoma has grown exponentially and we couldn’t have done it without you. Here are just some of the things you accomplished this year.

  • In addition to our chapters in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Norman, we added chapters in Stillwater, Woodward, and Moore.
  • Our membership grew from about 500 members in 2017 to nearly 1,000 strong today.
  • We hosted candidate forums in Lawton and Muskogee.
  • TOK members helped generate over 1,100 public comments and testified at meetings speaking out against a proposed rule change to SoonerCare that would end health care coverage for parents that are unable to work enough hours.
  • TOK chapters arranged meetings and trips to the Capitol during legislative session to advocate for increased revenue and protection of safety net programs.
  • And that’s not all!
TOK-Moore knocked on doors in their community to encourage people to get out and vote.
TOK-OKC hosted an event with Rep. Forrest Bennett to teach people how best to communicate with their legislator.
TOK-Stillwater hosted an event with The Oklahoma Academy to educate people about the tax code.
TOK-Woodward had a table and recruited new members at Enid Pride Festival.
TOK-Tulsa hosted a “What the Heck Am I Voting On?” event and were featured on local news.
TOK-Norman hosted a “Holiday Mingle and Jingle” with seven area legislators that gave members an opportunity to get to know their representatives before the next session.

We’ve had a great 2018 and with your help next year will be even better.  Help us continue to elevate the voices of more Oklahomans by donating to our work or purchasing a TOK t-shirt. Thank you for your support and we hope you will continue to join us in fighting for policies that work for all Oklahomans.
