How Does The League Select Issues for Emphasis?

The Program Planning process is part of what makes the League a grassroots organization; each League member has the opportunity to influence the selection of issues where the local, state, and national League will focus time, talent and money.

Program means the issues that we choose for concerted study, education and action at local, state and national levels. Program can include both education and action.

Every two years, members of local Leagues engage in Program Planning. Based on the results of this, the Board of Directors makes recommendations to the biennial convention delegates about the program to be adopted for the coming two year period.

Our updated Program For Action is available for review!

 

People Not Politicians: 

"When politicians manipulate their voting districts to give themselves an advantage, it's called partisan gerrymandering. People Not Politicians is a coalition of concerned Oklahomans who want to end gerrymandering by taking power away from politicians and bringing it back to the people.

It’s time to get politicians focused on fixing our state’s real problems – our crumbling roads, struggling schools and closing hospitals – instead of manipulating our political system to ensure they’re re-elected without having to answer to regular voters.

People Not Politicians filed a ballot initiative that would end the practice of partisan gerrymandering (the process that allows politicians to serve their self-interests instead of their constituents) by establishing an independent commission of Oklahoma citizens to draw boundaries for state legislative and congressional districts in a fair, open and transparent manner."
