Oklahoma City Annual Awards - honoring Claudia San Pedro

It was OCCJ's greatest pleasure to honor Claudia San Pedro for her commitment to diversity and inclusion and dedication to Oklahoma’s students at our 2021 OKC Annual Awards.

Claudia San Pedro serves as President of SONIC Drive-In, part of the Inspire Brands family of restaurants. Inspire is a multi-brand restaurant company whose portfolio includes more than 8,400 Arby’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, SONIC, and Rusty Taco locations worldwide.

Our Oklahoma City Annual Awards honors individuals of outstanding dedication and community service in the region. Honorees exhibit an extensive record of involvement in civic, charitable, volunteer, and professional organizations, and have contributed to the improvement of human relations among diverse groups in Oklahoma. 

The annual awards are the major fundraising event for our free school and youth programs. Our programs range from “Different and the Same,” to community discussions addressing current issues such as racism, xenophobia, and, anti-semitism. During the pandemic, we shifted to an accessible, virtual program model that allowed us to reach over 3,700 educators, professionals, and families during the spring. 

Current events illustrate the need for OCCJ’s work. At the heart of our mission is creating spaces for dialogue and facilitating programs that serve to empower, educate, and inspire Oklahomans to create inclusive communities, and ultimately, overcome oppression.
