Thankful for free speech
Posted on 10/30/2014
Promoting social justice, equality, education and tolerance are the baseline missions of the Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice. We are thankful for the opportunity to promote our mission – even when this means speaking out against a few voices in elected positions. Through various media outlets and member communications, the staff and board members at OCCJ have recently been busy promoting equality to counteract the inappropriate and hate-filled comments by members of the Oklahoma legislature. We don’t stand idly by when anyone – especially someone in a position of political power – spreads hate and misinformation. To counteract the recent anti-equality comments by our state elected officials, we’ve taken the following actions.
The dangerous rhetoric / The Tulsa Voice
Write your legislator campaign
Temper the rhetoric / Tulsa World
Religion hijacked by ISIS / Tulsa World
Criticism mounts following Oklahoma legislator's anti-Muslim remarks / Tulsa World
