Oklahoma City Annual Awards - honoring Jim Roth

It is our pleasure to announce that this year, OCCJ is honoring Jim Roth, Dean of Oklahoma City University’s School of Law. Dean Roth’s commitment to inclusion and equality spans several decades – as an elected official, an attorney in private practice, and as Dean of OCU Law. He has been advocating for civil rights and equal justice, both publicly and privately, his entire career. And, he has done so with a strength and humility that inspired us all. 

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 is OCCJ’s major source of funding for free programming. Current events in our nation remind us of the critical need for OCCJ’s work. At the heart of our mission is creating spaces for dialogue and programs that serve to empower, educate, and inspire Oklahomans to create inclusive communities and ultimately overcome oppression.

The Oklahoma City Annual Awards has been rescheduled and will be held on Monday, November 7th at the Oklahoma City Convention Center (100 Mick Cornett Drive, Oklahoma City, OK 73109) with a cocktail hour at 6:00 p.m. and dinner served at 7:00 p.m. Dress is business cocktail and there will be complementary valet parking.
