Notice: Due to changes in the Facebook API, we are no longer able to import events in an efficient way. This was how most of our listings were sourced, so it results in a much less populated calendar. Since Facebook is still tweaking its API, we are waiting to see if this will be fixed before seeking other solutions. We apologize for any inconvenience. More info.

______ OKC Strategize Your City _______
Saturday January 20, 9 AM – Noon in Oklahoma City
How can your organization become THE dominant force in city politics? This workshop introduces the basics of creating a long-lasting coalition that elects true representatives of the people every election. In this workshop, The Incorruptibles guide you through the five key areas you’ll focus on to build strong grassroots movement to take over your city. Our model for city organizing is based on the incredible success of the Richmond Progressive Alliance, which, over the course of a dozen years elected a two-term mayor and a super-majority on the city council, all candidates who were cultivated by the RPA.
______ Raising Small Dollar Donations ______
Saturday January 20, 3-5 pm in Norman
How can true representatives of the people compete with corporate-backed candidates? We must become experts at raising hundreds, thousands, or millions of small donations. In this workshop, The Incorruptibles guide you through a simple process by which you can turn every event into an opportunity to inspire generosity from supporters. We’ll also focus on a specific type of event, the Bernie-style Town Hall, that is an excellent way to learn from, educate, and mobilize constituents (to donate or volunteer).
______ Strategize Your State ______
Sunday January 21, 2-5 pm in Norman
Like our Strategize Your City workshop, Strategize Your State helps lay the groundwork for your organization or coalition to begin to fill state government with true representatives of the people. The Incorruptibles guide you through the five key areas you’ll focus on to build strong grassroots movement to take over your state government. Our model for statewide organizing is based on the success of Mass Alliance, a coalition that has increased the number of progressives in MA state government every election to about 40% today.
This calendar is for events of interest to the Oklahoma progressive/left community, primarily focusing on Central Oklahoma. If you would like an event listed, see our Event submission form.
