Since we left the Capitol, our team of advocates have been taking this show on the road! Everywhere we go, from the Turkey Mountain Outdoor Expo in Tulsa to the Ice Cream Festival in Tuttle, we find people who seriously want to get our state on the right track. But we also found that most of the folks we meet don’t know who their own two state legislators are.
How can we expect our legislators to know what we want if we don’t even know who they are?
We need your help to change that. NOW is the time to be building those relationships in our communities without the pressure of controversial bills coming to a vote at the Capitol.
That is why we’re taking the time to gather you together. This coming Sunday, June 25th, 2pm – 4pm, Together Oklahoma is hosting the Better Budget Bash at FOUR different locations across the state, and each of the locations will be connected by an online livestream:

Next we’ll be headed to the Porter Peach Festival on July 13th, 14th, and 15th. We’re going out there to enjoy some peaches, make friends, and be sure everyone is registered to vote, that they KNOW who their two legislators are, and that they get the invitation to join Together Oklahoma and learn how to become an advocate for fair and adequate funding of Oklahoma services. They are already with us, but they don’t know we are here!
Sign up for a shift with the Together Oklahoma table at the Porter Peach Festival HERE.
I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday for the Better Budget Bash! If you need more reasons to join us on Sunday, June 25th, from 2pm-4pm, I have 18 good ones for you right here!
See you there!
