We say our mission is “to educate and equip all Oklahomans to actively engage with their government,” but it’s so much more than that. Our mission is to make politics more interesting, accessible, useful, and easier to understand for regular, everyday people. Some might even say we make politics cool. We just want to make it better.
We believe a better Oklahoma can achieved through bipartisan cooperation and citizen leadership.
Information. We want to help the people of Oklahoma understand how their government works, why it works the way it does, and how they can make a difference in the process.
Engagement. We want to help all Oklahomans interact with their government in meaningful ways and to build relationships between officials and their constituents.
Accessibility. Politics isn’t just for rich old men. Policy decisions affect all of us, and we want to make it fun and easy for regular folks to stay informed and understand what’s going on at the State Capitol.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
In early 2016, Oklahoma was facing a $1.2 billion budget shortfall, and suddenly people who hadn’t been paying attention to state politics began tuning in. Oklahoma City resident Andy Moore invited a few friends to go the State Capitol to talk to legislators about the situation and urge them to action. He called the event “Let’s Fix This: A Day at the Capitol For Regular Folks.” More than 100 people attended that first event, and it was soon followed by more advocacy events bringing in more participants. People, it seemed, were eager to get involved if someone took the time to explain how to do it.
Let's Fix This is now a nonpartisan, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is dedicated to educating Oklahomans on the laws, policies, and other political issues that affect them the most and creating opportunities for the public to interact with their elected officials in meaningful ways.
We’re just regular folks who care about our state and our communities and who believe that we deserve better. We take complicated political issues and present them in an easy-to-understand format. We want you to vote, to know who and what you're voting for, and to actually talk to your elected officials about the issues that are important to you. We want to encourage our lawmakers to reach across the aisle and work together toward responsible, common-sense solutions that benefit all Oklahomans.
