Learn More about OK Policy and the resources that we provide
OK Policy is an independent, nonpartisan, non-profit that provides factual information and advocates for fair and responsible public policies. You can learn more about us here. We focus on statewide public policies in Oklahoma — including the state budget and taxes, criminal justice, education, health care, immigration, poverty and opportunity, and voting and elections. You can find regular updates about these issues on our blog.
One especially popular resource that we provide is In The Know, a daily email with links to the most important Oklahoma news stories, a quote of the day, number of the day, and useful policy readings. You can see past editions of this newsletter and subscribe for free here.
Other useful tools on our website include the Legislative Primer, a guide to the important players and process of Oklahoma’s state government. We’ll update this Primer for 2019 before the next legislative session begins in February. We’ve also created a glossary of key terms in Oklahoma politics and government. See the What’s That? glossary here. And you can visit our CountySTATS report to find interactive charts and key facts about each of Oklahoma’s 77 counties.
If you’d like to invite one of our staffers to speak to your group or event, we have a simple speaker request form here. We also put on a series of events throughout the year. Our next State Budget Summit will happen in January, featuring discussions with state leaders about key issues related to Oklahoma’s budget. The keynote speaker will be William Julius Wilson, the Harvard sociologist, author of several books on race and inequality, and past recipient of a MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’. Keep an eye out in your email inbox for when you can reserve your spot at this popular event.
Other projects by OK Policy include the Summer Policy Institute for college students, the Oklahoma Mental Health Policy Fellowship for rising professionals, KIDS COUNT to share key data and advocate for better child well-being, Open Justice Oklahoma to uncover data that sheds light on how our justice system operates, and Together Oklahoma to help regular Oklahomans advocate within their communities for policies that improve the lives of all people in our state.
Finally, we are a non-profit organization, and we depend on the generosity of Oklahomans to do this work. If you appreciate the research and advocacy tools that we provide, please consider supporting us with a one-time or recurring donation.
