Oklahoma oil companies have been controlling our representation for far too long. It happens on a state level and affects things like education. Forcing our educational system to take the back burner for years. We have rallied time after time and nothing has been successful enough to unify us until this week.
My question for Oklahomans is, when are we all going to realize that standing together like this can make a change on the important issues that plague our state?
Oklahoma has been directly impacted by earthquakes caused by fracking due to oil companies. Countless people have reached out to voice their concern on environmental protection, climate solutions, and saving our water. Our voices have been hushed by the oil companies in Oklahoma.
We can voice our opinions, let our voices be heard, and we can vote. We should unite together to make a difference. Reach out to Senator Lankford’s office at (202) 224-5754 and Senator Inhofe’s office at (202) 224-4721 and tell them to act bipartisan when it comes to environmental concerns. We can take back our voice from the oligarchy!
