Taking the organizing model the Bernie ’16 Campaign used in OKC and around the country, Our Revolution Oklahoma will meet on March 6 to arm ourselves with the latest and greatest information to push for Medical Marijuana legalization (one of the state questions on the June 26th ballot) and then organize into teams ready to take the “Vote YES” message to the streets and the web. Can you feel the Bern?!
This will be the first quarterly membership meeting of 2018, which is an important election year for candidates as well as ballot initiatives like 788. The June 26 election will also include the gubernatorial primaries.
Our informative forum will include members of Patients and Activists for 788 and Oklahomans for Cannabis, who organized and collected signatures to make sure the citizen initiative was on the ballot for Oklahoma voters after a years-long struggle.
There will also be reports from our committees on their work, and some resources on the campaigns and candidates that will be on our ballots this year. The event will be held at the Teamsters Union Hall and doors open at 6 PM!
On Tuesday, January 23 from 5:30 – 8:30 pm, join OROK to watch and cheer as Bernie Sanders holds a 90-minute town hall on his Medicare for All plan. We will access the event via livestream from Washington DC., which starts at 6pm Central time. Space is limited, so reserve your seat using the form below.

OKC Strategize Your City
Saturday January 20, 9 AM – Noon in Oklahoma City | Register for this event
How can your organization become THE dominant force in city politics? This workshop introduces the basics of creating a long-lasting coalition that elects true representatives of the people every election. In this workshop, The Incorruptibles guide you through the five key areas you’ll focus on to build strong grassroots movement to take over your city. Our model for city organizing is based on the incredible success of the Richmond Progressive Alliance, which, over the course of a dozen years elected a two-term mayor and a super-majority on the city council, all candidates who were cultivated by the RPA.
Raising Small Dollar Donations
Saturday January 20, 3-5 pm in Norman | Register for this event
How can true representatives of the people compete with corporate-backed candidates? We must become experts at raising hundreds, thousands, or millions of small donations. In this workshop, The Incorruptibles guide you through a simple process by which you can turn every event into an opportunity to inspire generosity from supporters. We’ll also focus on a specific type of event, the Bernie-style Town Hall, that is an excellent way to learn from, educate, and mobilize constituents (to donate or volunteer).
Strategize Your State
Sunday January 21, 2-5 pm in Norman | Register for this event
Like our Strategize Your City workshop, Strategize Your State helps lay the groundwork for your organization or coalition to begin to fill state government with true representatives of the people. The Incorruptibles guide you through the five key areas you’ll focus on to build strong grassroots movement to take over your state government. Our model for statewide organizing is based on the success of Mass Alliance, a coalition that has increased the number of progressives in MA state government every election to about 40% today.
Listen to the Richmond, California story of taking back government from corporate control:
Our Revolution Okahoma will feature the Democratic candidates for Governor at the next membership meeting on Dec. 12. All members and interested citizens are invited to attend to learn more about the issues affecting Oklahoma and how strong, organized progressives can make a difference!
