On a chilly January Saturday, grassroots advocates in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and other communities are gathering to learn the legislative process and how to communicate with lawmakers for the sake of better legislative action.
In Tulsa, Americans For Prosperity of Oklahoma (AFP-OK) sponsored a conference along with the Tulsa 912 Project. Attendees heard from several veteran advocates, including Amanda Teegarden; about how and when to have the biggest impact on legislation which affects issues important to them. Tulsa 912 & AFP funded the cost and those attending were also given the opportunity to give back to the leaders who taught the content of the 9 hour conference & meals.
In OKC, The Foundation for Applied Conservative Leadership held their Oklahoma Political Leadership School. It was a full day event and admission was a set fee with student discounts available.

"No politician 'checks off every box" in your list of issues. You have to prioritize and use personal discretion regarding every current and future issue that you can imagine. Then you have to also judge integrity & consistency. A candidate's openness to study the issues & courage to think for themselves. Then you need to review their honesty & work ethic. I respect any voter's decision, when they've informed themselves and took voting seriously." - David Van Risseghem
SoonerPolitics.org is committed to informing & mobilizing conservative Oklahomans for civic reform & restored liberty. We seeks to utilize the efforts of all cooperative facets of the Conservative movement... Content of the diverse columns are solely at the discretion of the dozens of websites who create the content. David Van Risseghem is the founder of this platform. Sooner Politics News is a platform, not a media site. All our bloggers get their feeds promoted regardless of content. As soon as We suppress or delete even one posting, we become an endorser of whatever We didn't censor..The publisher doesn't (and could not) logically agree with all the content, so we would not expect any rational reader to agree, either. What we do hope, is that readers will think for themselves, and at least be better informed of the issues, events, and values that our citizen journalists work hard to provide for free.. We automate much of the tasks so that our sources' content gets as much exposure as possible. We encourage constructive discussion & debate. The solution is more free speech, not less.
