February 2021 with Marsy's Law for Oklahoma


While it’s not yet tornado season, the Oklahoma team braved a storm of other sorts in mid-February, as a blizzard of unprecedented local temperatures and impact began on Valentine’s Day and brought with it intermittently, rolling blackouts and water outages. Through it all, MLOK conducted its first quarterly Advisory Board meeting of the year and began planning for National Crime Victims’ Rights week by scheduling the purple lighting of landmarks around the state. The team also attended a virtual Pardon and Parole Board meeting and had the opportunity to work alongside their victim-witness coordinator, and an Advisory Board member, to offer support and assistance to a crime victim navigating the system during such an incredibly overwhelming time in the state.
