Our Revolution Oklahoma to host 2019 legislative forum

The forum, originally scheduled for Feb 27, was rescheduled for April 3.

Democratic legislators will be featured at a legislative forum hosted by Our Revolution Oklahoma on Wednesday, April 3 at the Pioneer Library in Moore. All are invited to this free event. Light refreshments will be served.

In addition, representatives from several local advocacy groups will be present, including Oklahoma Call for Reproductive Justice, Mom’s Demand Action, and Good Government Petitions. Retiring OKC City Councilman Ed Shadid will also be features.

The panel will review the bills being considered in the 2019 legislature, with a focus on citizen advocacy to advance legislation that aligns with OR-OK’s mission of “restoring democracy for working people.”

House Minority Leader Emily Virgin (HD44) has affirmed her attendance. Other confirmed participants include newly elected Senator Carri Hicks (SD40), who was endorsed by OR-OK in her 2018 campaign that successfully flipped this mid-OKC Senate district. Also attending are Senator George Young, Rep. Collin Walke (HD87) and Rep. Jacob Rosecrants (HD46).

Christine Byrd, a member of the OR-OK board of directors, will moderate the panel.

“We are tracking bills and votes, including those that address our key progressive issues for this term: protecting public education, increasing the minimum wage, and expanding health care options. We will provide tools and resources for advocating on important bills that address these goals.“

The library is located at 225 South Howard in Moore. Socializing begins at 6:15, program begins at 6:30.
