SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER
Tamya Cox-Toure Excutive Director ACLU of Oklahoma
Tamya served as the first Legislative Counsel for the affiliate. She graduated with an undergrad degree from Oklahoma State University and went on to continue her education at Oklahoma City University School of Law. She joins us from Planned Parenthood Great Plains where she served as Regional Director of Public Policy and Organizing, overseeing the Public Affairs departments in Oklahoma and Arkansas.
Tamya is committed to civil rights and civil liberties. She has traveled across the state and country speaking directly to communities on issues that impact their daily lives, as well as presenting on numerous panels covering a variety of topics, including race equity. Her dedication to the work is best summarized through her favorite Alice Walker quote, “Activism is my rent to live on this planet.”
Sarah Adams-Cornell Co-Founder of Matriarch Non-Profit and the Vice President of the Sovereign Community School Board
She is an advocate for Native American culture, education and rights. She is a member of the Choctaw Nation, serves as a board member for the OK Choctaw Tribal Alliance, is a core member of Idle No More Central Oklahoma and co-hosts a radio program, Warrior Womyn, which addresses topics concerning Indian Country and current news.
Sarah has taught thousands of children about Native American culture through presentations she and her family offer to schools in the Oklahoma City metro area. This began in an effort to replace Land Run reenactments in her daughter’s school. Sarah, in conjunction with OKCPS Native American Student Services, is currently working on a historically accurate, culturally inclusive curriculum, “Oklahoma History Day,” to present as an alternative to Land Run reenactments in Oklahoma schools. Sarah believes that all children benefit from an accurate education about Oklahoma and US history.
