OKHPR FAQ

OKHPR is a grassroots, volunteer-led organization. We do not employ any full time staff members (though with your support, we hope to do so in the future). As we have grown, we have decided to organize our group into senate district teams. If an answer cannot be found in this FAQ or on our website, please first direct your question to your nearest senate district captain. Instructions on how to find your senate district captain are listed below. If you still need assistance, please email us at info@okhpr.com. We ask for patience as we get hundreds of emails a day and it takes us some time to respond to them all.

Once you have become a member, use this link to find your senate district captain and get connected with them. You must be signed in to your OKHPR account to access the senate district captain list. If you are not signed in, you will be redirected to the homepage.

 

If you are not sure what senate district you live in, use this link to search. We recommend using the ‘search by zipcode’ option in the bottom left.

 

Once you are in touch with your senate district captain, take a moment to join our new texting service by texting #S(your district number) to 405-251-8915. For example, if you live in senate district 3 you would text #S3.

 

Lastly, follow our social media accounts for quick updates and to share important news with your friends and family. You can follow our public Facebook page, request to join our private Facebook action group (please fill out all the entry questions to speed up the approval process), follow our Instagram, follow us on Twitter, and follow us on MeWe.

If you are a healthcare worker, please also register as a healthcare worker here in addition to your regular membership. As more and more medical choice is being stripped from our healthcare workers, we are using this separate membership as a way to send targeted emails and action alerts to healthcare employees. You can also text #HCP to 405-251-8915 to join our texting service as a healthcare employee. Lastly, we have opened a Facebook group for OKHPR Health Professionals. Make sure you are a member on the website and texting service before requesting to join! Facebook has shut down 2 OKHPR Facebook groups in the past so it is important that we do not rely only on Facebook for communication!

There are many ways to show your support to OKHPR. Financial contributions can be made to the OKHPR PAC or the OKHPR Foundation using our website

 

The OKHPR PAC is a political action committee. These donations are used to support candidates who support health and parental rights. Your non-tax-deductible donation ensures that we can support campaigns and influence Oklahoma politics.

 

The OKHPR Foundation is organized to provide education and support to the community in the areas of health choice, parental rights, medical privacy, and informed consent. The Foundation shall operate exclusively for charitable and educational purposes described under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. These donations are tax deductible. Donations to the Foundation shall not be utilized for campaigning or lobbying purposes.

If you own a business, you can become a member of the OKHPR Community Coalition. This is a directory of businesses and organizations that support OKHPR’s mission. To view the coalition members, click here.

We recommend you use this search to find your legislators. Once you enter in your address, make sure you scroll down to see the full list of your legislators. The first two legislators are your US Senators. Next, is your U.S. House of Representatives member. Lastly, you will see your State Senator and State House Representative. As a state-wide political action committee, OKHPR will often ask you to contact your state Senator and House Representative. So write these two people down. They are the ones you need to remember!

 

Another fantastic resource is the ‘Okla 58th’ app. This is maintained by Oklahoma’s Electric Cooperative and is available on the apple app store and android. This app has all of the contact information for your legislators, district maps, the legislative calendar and many more helpful resources! We encourage you to download this free app.

OKHPR sends a weekly email newsletter called The Roar Release to all OKHPR members. Our emails are sent each weekend and often get accidentally sent to spam or the promotions folder (on gmail). Please search your inbox for “The Roar Release” or “info@okhpr.com” to locate your emails. If you still cannot find them, email us at info@okhpr subject line: ATTN Miranda. Our Assistant Director will verify that your email is correct in our email system. If that is all correct, the problem is often related to your email settings. Please use the following troubleshooting steps to fix this.

While we work on fixing this issue, an archive of OKHPR emails can be found in your members dashboard.

When OKHPR plans a Capitol Day, we will always have a registration page on our website. This registration will include the most important information about when and where to meet. If this is your first time to join us at the State Capitol, you may have additional questions like where to park, what to wear etc. Those questions can be answered by reading our Capitol Day FAQ here. Do not be worried about not knowing what to do or say at the Capitol. You will always be paired with a trained captain who will help you learn how to speak to legislators, how to pull legislators off of the floor, how committee meetings work and more. OKHPR has a goal of training up members to be successful advocates at the Oklahoma State Capitol!

 

We have written out a number of tips on how we suggest members of OKHPR conduct themselves when speaking with legislators or their assistants. Following these tips will ensure that you get your point across while building a relationship and reputation with your state legislators. You can find these tips on your members dashboard here. Remember, you have to be signed in to your OKHPR account to view the members dashboard, otherwise you will be redirected to the homepage.

Please understand that this is a list of mainstream medical doctors who (typically) take insurance and have a history of being agreeable to seeing patients who make alternative vaccine choices— these are NOT doctors who are against vaccines. Please also note that doctors listed are based on other patient/member recommendations and experiences may differ. 

 

You will only have access to the health providers in your region. If you need to change regions, please use this link to submit a request.

It is important to note that the only law pertaining to vaccines in Oklahoma is applicable to school children and college students. Oklahoma vaccine law does not include adults.

Resources related to vaccine law can be found on the resources page of our website. Here you will find the Oklahoma vaccine exemption form (which is used for school or daycare entry), read vaccine law, and read our vaccine exemption FAQ which includes information on what facilities are required to accept a vaccine exemption, how to fill out the form, what to do if your exemption is denied, and how to report a school that is violating the law.

SB 658, which went into effect July 1st of 2021, provides medical choice to parents. The bill specifies

All public K-12 schools and public and private universities:

  • Mask mandates can only be issued by school boards and only if a state of emergency has been declared by the governor. The mask mandates must also be reviewed at each school board meeting. The only exception is Pre-K-12 private schools, which do not fall under the Board of Regents and are totally independent, so they can mandate masks; however, private universities cannot mandate masks because they do fall under the Board of Regents.For all schools, including private schools:
  •  Mask mandates are not allowed for unvaccinated students only. No discrimination!
  • Transparency on common education vaccinations; meaning schools must tell parents that they can opt-out using exemptions if parents so choose.
  • Vaccine passports, otherwise known as, “papers, please” are not allowed in any level of education. You do not have to tell school officials if your child has had the C-19 vaccine under any circumstances.
  •  No C-19 vaccine mandate for Pre-K-12 and Higher Education, with the exception of some medical programs that must-see patients in a clinical or hospital setting.*Prek-12th cannot mandate masks for students or teachers but universities can for teachers ONLY. We are examining the bus issue, check back next week.

To report a school that is violating SB 658, please click here. You can also print a sample letter explaining how the school has violated SB 658 from your membership dashboard. We recommend mailing this letter to the school, superintendent, or school board. You should also alert your State Senator and State Representative. In addition, the attorney general’s office has requested that we report violations to his office. You can call his office at 405-521-3921.

You can also watch a FAQ with the authors of SB 658 on our youtube page. This FAQ answers the commonly asked questions such as, “Does SB 658 apply to school transportation?”, “Can schools discriminate based on vaccine status when it comes to quarantine procedures?”, “Can school employees be required to wear a mask?” and more.

A  full breakdown of the law can be printed by clicking here. Many parents are giving this document to their children to carry with them at school.
