Something unexpected happened at our 2023 Delegates Assembly...
This almost never happens with ACTION events: even more people showed up to our Delegates' Assembly than RSVP'd!

After ratifying our issues agenda for this year, member institutions collectively pledged $20,000 toward building relational power to take action together.
Then, we learned about promising legislation to protect Oklahoma tenants and expand driver's license eligibility from Sabine Brown and Gabriela Ramirez-Perez of OK Policy Institute. We will be sharing more information and mobilizing around those bills in the coming weeks.
Lastly, nearly 60 people expressed interest in learning more about our work and joining Action Teams!
