An Update & Gratitude

In March, we announced that we were shifting to remote work to prioritize the health and safety of our program participants, volunteers, and staff. Given the nature of our programs and outreach, we understood this would be an adjustment, but moved forward resolute in our commitment to the rich history of our organization.

When embarking on this new journey, we outlined our commitment to several strategies. In the coming weeks, we will announce new partnerships and initiatives, so we are taking a moment to discuss how we met each of these commitments, and thank you for supporting us to this point.

While decided to postpone Anytown until 2021, we are excited to facilitate the Youth Leadership and Race forum this fall in a virtual format. We are honored to create space for young people to have meaningful conversations about race relations in the United States, the legacy of Blackness in our community, and their power to advocate for change for themselves and those around them.

Our Annual Awards will take place as scheduled, albeit in a new format. We are excited to honor Governor Brad and Kim Henry in Oklahoma City, and frontline workers in Tulsa. The Board of Directors and staff are equally looking forward to gathering safely in a virtual format to celebrate our honorees. 

None of this would be possible without the endless support of our Board of Directors, partners, donors, and community.

We are grateful for your messages, donations, and raised hands to join us as volunteers.
