“We are proud to bring the Voice Your Vote campaign to the community,” said CAIR-OK Communications Director Jillian Holzbauer-Frazier. “It is vital to engage Oklahomans from all walks of life in the political process. Because many people feel unheard and unrepresented in the political process, this election year offers a great opportunity to empower these communities to get involved and raise their voices.”
