Together OK Code of Conduct at the Capitol

Together Oklahoma seeks to make our information available for all Oklahomans. With that said, we do have a few important guidelines for those who attend Capitol visits as a part of our team.

We are at the state Capitol to be a productive part of the policy development process. If you are focused on disrupting meetings, please do not affiliate yourself with Together Oklahoma.

Our aim is to do the most good we can do for Oklahoma and not pursue personal grudges or partisanship.  If you are on our team, please help us to keep this focus.

Together Oklahoma does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, military status, or political party affiliation in any of its activities or operations. We do reserve the right to exclude individuals whose values do not align with our mission.

It is extremely important that Together Oklahoma members are welcoming to new advocates who are visiting the Capitol for the first time and that if issues arise, all parties are treated with dignity and respect.

Any advocate with Together Oklahoma has the responsibility to enhance our credibility with the Legislature and their staff by being honest, forthright, candid, and civil. At times this may include reaching out to a fellow member of TOK to let them know when they may be doing damage to our organization. If you are uncomfortable compassionately calling someone in for disrespectful behavior, please do let the TOK leadership team know of your concern so we can work together to take the right action.

You can see more about who we are here, and we hope you will find our educational information to be useful no matter how you choose to engage at the Capitol.
