"We believe that informed and engaged citizens are the foundation of a healthy and enduring democracy."
We bring people together to connect with each other and to share in a community of citizens engaged in the civic life of our city and state.

Our programs are non-partisan and we welcome diverse viewpoints and perspectives.

We organize and sponsor a broad variety of programs and activities, but all are designed to support our mission of promoting involvement in the civic life of our community. All of our activities are open to the public. We hope you will join us too!

Our web studies also further our mission by offering opportunities for visitors to our site to learn more about the culture of Tulsa and the forces that formed it. Click here to learn more about us.
