Advocate - State & Local
There is no more powerful way to impact positive change than to leverage the will of parents and people at the state Capitol. We advocate every year to inform and influence education policy at the Oklahoma State Legislature, which is composed of both the state House of Representatives and the state Senate. Both representatives and senators are term-limited at 12 years in office. The 101 state representatives serve two-year terms and the state’s 48 senators serve four-year terms. Each year, the Legislature meets, or is “in session”, from the first Monday in February until adjournment (Sine Die,) which has to occur by 5 pm on the last Friday in May.
