Since 1993, our work has paved the way for many policy victories.
As a trusted source for fact-based public policy analysis, the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs (OCPA) has filled this vital role in the Sooner State for 25 years, watching out for the best interests of Oklahoma families, businesses, children, and taxpayers.
Research has shown time and time again that the free market is the single greatest tool in the world for lifting the most people out of poverty in the least amount of time, enabling human flourishing at unprecedented levels.
If we want a bright future for our residents—especially the most vulnerable—then our charge is simple: to doggedly pursue our mission until every Oklahoman can be empowered to live a life of opportunity.
To promote the flourishing of the people of Oklahoma by advancing principles and policies that support free enterprise, limited government, individual initiative, personal responsibility, and strong families.
