Community Presence

Eyes Wide Open: We have been the State coordinator of the American Friends Service Committee exhibition “Eyes Wide Open”.  This exhibition of boots and civilian shoes is a memorial to those who have lost their lives and a witness to our belief that no war can justify its human cost. Since 2007 the boots have been displayed at major cities throughout the State.

EyesWideOpen2010Response to Mass Incarceration: Our meeting has undertaken a public education campaign to promote awareness of Oklahoma’s incarceration policies.  Oklahoma incarcerates more women than any other state in the union – twice the national average.  We rank third in the incarceration of men. The impact this practice has on the children of incarcerated parents is tragic. We have provided informational displays at University of Oklahoma football games and have given presentations to church groups and various other public venues. Our meeting conducted workshops on incarceration for the Arkansas-Oklahoma Winter Quarterly Meeting, South Central Yearly Meeting, and at Friends General Conference “Gatherings” in Grinnell Iowa, and at the University of Rhode Island. Future efforts by our Meeting on this topic are being planned and overseen by a committee.
