What started out as a group of friends to get people more engaged with their legislator and stop complaining on Facebook, has turned into... a movement.
In just a short time, the group "Let's Fix This" has brought everyday Oklahomans and legislators together to discuss issues that will make the Sooner State better.
Andy Moore organized the nonpartisan, nonprofit group with a mission to help people get involved in their government. Moore took advantage of Facebook to get his word out and the response continues to grow.
Today's Let's Fix This Capitol Day had the crowd at the Oklahoma State Capitol with a meet and greet and get organized. Then it was a journey around the Legislator's offices to personally meet and discuss issues. Citizens could observe the legislative session and even invited them to pull legislators out of session to talk to them.
The day wound down with the Let's Fix This Capitol Crawl in Uptown. Here, Oklahomans and Legislators went hang out at local eateries and talk with legislators in a more relaxed environment.
