Our Upcoming Events
As you make your plans for this year’s “Giving Tuesday” on November 28, please keep the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy and the children for whom we fight in mind. We are fully dependent on generous Oklahomans, and it is your investments that have allowed us to help pass a series of initiatives at the Oklahoma Legislature, including measures to:
- Increase teacher pay.
- Improve maternity leave for school district and state employees.
- Protect students’ rights to wear tribal regalia to graduation ceremonies.
- Enhance state support for access to local fresh fruits and vegetables for consumers.
This list of successes is incomplete, though, without including bills our Board of Directors deemed harmful to Oklahoma’s children that we helped prevent becoming law. Sometimes, it is just as important to stop a bad bill from becoming an even worse law as it is to pass good legislation. The insight and data-driven research OICA provides is a critical resource for lawmakers as they consider increasingly complex bills.
The stage is set for even more child-positive measures in the years ahead, but success is only attainable with support from sponsors like you! To donate to OICA, click the button below:
