About this Event

Help us pay tribute to David Blatt, outgoing Executive Director, with friends, food, drinks and fun!

David helped found OK Policy in 2008 and became the organization’s Executive Director in 2010. While at OK Policy, David’s work involved conducting research, writing issue briefs, blog posts, and columns, and giving public presentations on state budget and tax policy, poverty, health care, and various other subjects.

“Leading OK Policy has been a tremendous privilege and pleasure, especially the chance to work with an amazing professional staff and a dedicated and supportive Board of Directors. I’m especially proud of the success the organization has had these past years in shifting the policy debate in Oklahoma towards a greater recognition of the need for fair and adequate funding of public services. I know I’m going to miss OK Policy enormously, but I’m also very optimistic that the organization and its impact will continue to grow under our new leader.”

We are also excited for you to meet our incoming Executive Director, Ahniwake Rose, originally from Oklahoma who most recently served as Deputy Director and interim Executive Director of the National Congress of American Indians in Washington, D.C.

Please consider contributing to the David Blatt Legacy Fund to honor David, to ensure OK Policy's future success, and most importantly, to endorse the important work we do.
