In Oklahoma, freedom means freedom for everyone. Join our campaign to win equality for all LGBT Oklahomans: http://FreedomOklahoma.org/ Cimarron Alliance and The Equality Network are now Freedom Oklahoma. Together, we are bigger. Together, we are stronger. Together, we will win.
Freedom Oklahoma is Oklahoma’s statewide advocacy and education organization for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community. Freedom Oklahoma, in collaboration with community partners, led the public education efforts - in 2014 - to ensure the smooth implementation of marriage equality in Oklahoma. We went on to defeat a nationally unprecedented 31 pieces of anti-LGBTQ legislation in 2015 and 2016, as a result of the backlash caused by the freedom to marry coming to Oklahoma and the nation. This was done through strong partnerships with both Republican and Democratic legislators. We also helped usher in fully inclusive protections against discrimination in employment, public accommodations, and housing in Norman in 2015, and fully inclusive housing protections in Oklahoma City in 2016. We continue to work with municipalities across the state to bring protections to a city near you, sooner rather than later. In this post-marriage environment, our main focuses are ending the dangerous practice of so-called “conversion therapy,” fighting for the rights and dignity of the transgender community, winning protections against discrimination for all Oklahomans, and bringing an end to the homeless crisis amongst LGBTQ youth. There has never been more hope for progress in LGBTQ rights in Oklahoma or anywhere else in the nation. At Freedom Oklahoma, we would be honored for you to join the fight for freedom and equality. Please sign up to volunteer <link> and to become a monthly donor to sustain the monumental work we still have ahead of us <link>. After all, the person who makes Freedom Oklahoma’s work possible is you. Freedom Oklahoma is a member of the Equality Federation.
