The next OK-SAFE Action Forum will be Thursday, October 1st, 2009.
Oklahomans are aware of the growth of big government and have been stirred to action. They’ve rallied together and protested to make their voices heard in the public square. Some folks are ready to move on to the next step, [getting involved in the OK legislative process], but may be asking themselves, ”How do I do that?”
The next OK-SAFE Action Forum will be something all Oklahoma grassroots activists can use – a no-spin training session on “Citizen Involvement in the Legislative Process”, focusing on the Oklahoma Legislature.
Topics will include:
- Civic responsibility
- Introduction to the Oklahoma Legislature website
- How a bill is introduced
- The course of a bill in the legislative process
- Bill tracking
- How to lobby
The bad policies of the federal government are implemented at the state level – the states can fight back, IF enough citizens understand the legislative process and get involved.
Our rights have been given to us by God, not man, but ”man” is working feverishly to remove those rights.
The Oklahoma Capitol belongs to the people; who typically lobbies the OK legislature, however, are multinational corporations and big government special interest groups.
This needs to change. The people must take back their civic responsibility and become involved in the legislative process.
Make plans today to attend this training meeting.
Date: Thursday, Oct. 1, 2009
