Thanks to The Oklahoman’s Coverage of Prescription Drug Abuse, Laws Were Changed to Make Our Community Safer.
So said former Oklahoma Speaker of the House Kris Steele about The Oklahoman’s key role in exposing and publicizing our state’s prescription drug abuse crisis.
In fact, The Oklahoman was one of the very first news organizations nationwide to report on this issue starting several years ago and we continue to follow it today.
Why? Because at The Oklahoman, community involvement is about more than raising money and donating hours for deserving charities around the state, it’s about informing and protecting our citizens, and creating an environment for positive change.
Like our Purpose Statement says, we aim to make Oklahoma a better place to live, work and raise a family — and we take that mission very seriously.
