Introducing the Oklahoma Policy Institute

May 6, 2008

We received an email from David Blatt yesterday. Mr. Blatt, who was formerly with the Community Action Project of Tulsa, is now the Director of Policy for a spin off organization from CAP called the Oklahoma Policy Institute. According to Blatt, the mission of the Oklahoma Policy Institute is to “advance policies aimed at alleviating poverty, promoting fiscal responsibility, and expanding economic opportunity.”

From the email:

“To that end, we will conduct objective analysis of state policy issues to position Oklahoma to become a more prosperous, better educated, healthier, and increasingly equitable state. Our work spins off from the public policy department of Community Action Project of Tulsa County (CAP), but with an independent Board and new leadership.

Although their positions are a little left of center from ours, we nevertheless wish them all the best!
