Your Story Has Value

Oklahomans from all walks of life speak up about the importance of voting and upholding their values.

I’ve seen people go overlooked in important decisions that are being made. I’ve seen people go unheard…I want to make sure that everybody has an equal part.

Student, Stillwater

I think what we’ve seen over the past few years is a strong polarization of political discussions when a lot of us are really in the middle and a lot of us on both sides of the aisle love our state. We might love our state differently, and we might have different priorities, but we like Oklahoma and we don’t want to be combative. We don’t want to be, you know, black and white and everything. We want to come together and find solutions that we can all work together towards…Democracy is not a spectator sport.
