Sundra Flansburg - VOICE Oct 02, 2023 5:30 PM
Nonprofit leader and strategist, specializing in communications and capacity building. VOICE

Sundra is the Lead Organizer for VOICE.

VOICE (Voices Organized in Civic Engagement) is a coalition of dues-paying congregations, nonprofits, worker associations, and schools that have come together out of a deep sense of mission and concern about the pressures families face in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area. We work to better understand those pressures by listening to the experiences of the people in our member institutions. We then engage those impacted in better understanding the issues and learning to work effectively for improvements that benefit all. While we differ on some issues, we focus on the areas in which we find the common ground that allows us to work together. We develop the leadership skills of our own members to work effectively within the democratic process with civic leaders and public officials on issues of concern to families.
