Saxum provided media relations, social media, public relations and community engagement support. Using our local insight and expertise as well as our relationships with local media, we employed a media relations strategy to inform Oklahomans on the importance and urgency of criminal justice reform in the state. We worked closely with a team of other national agencies, high-profile community leaders and supporters to ultimately reach our goal of getting state questions 780 and 781 on the ballot, as well as successful passage of both state questions in November 2016.
