The Oklahoma Roundup group has repurposed itself and is now a regional organizing group on Daily Kos, like the ones the NEW DAY team promotes.

If you are from, living in, or have any ties to or just a keen interest in Oklahoma's goings on, and want to be part of using Daily Kos for community building and event planning, we want you!

See below the orange croissant for ideas for physical meetups and e-connections.

This will be a statewide group (unless and until more focused local groups form), but I live in Oklahoma City, so in terms of events, that's what I personally will be involved in. If you are in Tulsa, Lawton, or somewhere outside of the OKC Metro, feel free to post in comments, start a new group, or whatever moves you. If/as that evolves, Oklahoma Roundup will promote and aggregate as much as possible.

Oklahoma City meetup

I propose a meeting at Ingrid's Kitchen on a Saturday or Sunday. I'm game for doing this in December, but if most others that are interested in attending prefer to wait till after the holidaze, I could probably find some patience lying around here somewhere (seeing as how I seldom use it). I suggest Ingrid's because it's sort of cafeteria style and you can hang out there for quite awhile without annoying the wait staff. (I meet there with a group of feminists on Saturday mornings already.)

Anyway, who's game for that? Or do you have another idea?

Team members and participation

Oklahoma Roundup needs members who are interested in
 * creating organizing-themed diaries to get the group developed. Should be able to participate fully in comment threads in said diaries.
 * creating interesting Oklahoma-themed diaries, especially those that involve the work and events of progressive groups that aren't getting the media attention they deserve
 * republishing diaries that serve to promote progressive politics/culture in the state
 * engaging readers in the comment threads of diaries listed above
 * finding, in diaries throughout Daily Kos, Oklahomans who can be made aware of Oklahoma Roundup, and invited to join.

I'm sure there's more, but that's a good start, I think.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
