Women’s voices in Oklahoma desperately need to be heard. We know that women in leadership directly impact the wellbeing of our communities by working more effectively across the aisle, listening to constituents, and incorporating otherwise absent perspectives into male colleagues’ legislation. Simply put, women get more done.
Oklahoma ranks 48th in female representation at the state legislative level. Though women comprise 51% of the overall population, we make up only 14% of the legislators at the State Capitol.
Sally’s List is determined to help empower and improve the lives of all Oklahomans, and we believe electing women is the first step.
Recruit, train, and help elect progressive women to public office in Oklahoma.
Since 2010, Sally’s List has prepared candidates and campaign staff to run viable campaigns, and advocated for progressive change in Oklahoma. A nonpartisan organization, Sally’s List seeks out women who know the importance of investing in public education, healthcare, a strong economy and other community-building issues.
Our training and mentorship programs help women remove the barriers which prevent them from making an impact in their communities.
Imagine an Oklahoma where:
