Mauree Turner is Oklahoma home grown, finishing up her degrees at Oklahoma State University, in Sociology and Political Science. In her time at OSU, Turner has held numerous leadership roles and been an advocate for marginalized students from all walks of life as well as cultural competency and awareness training at OSU for faculty, staff, and students alike.
In addition to her time devoted to OSU student leadership, Mauree is also a member of OSU’s faculty and staff Difficult Dialogue Team to promote the importance of critical conversation with all people around us. Her research is focused in race relations, intersectionality, and interfaith relations in America. Civil liberties have been a passion of hers since the 1st grade, and she has her mother to thank for that.
Mauree is motivated by her belief that human rights aren’t determined by economic status, religious hierarchies or sexual orientation. She is grateful for the opportunity to work for the ACLU of Oklahoma and plans to be a continued agent of progressive, positive, change.
