He said, “my hope with our ’50 in 50′ initiative is to meet the citizens of District 1, where they are, listen to their needs and concerns, and ultimately be able to build a campaign that works for every Oklahoman”.

Kojo Asamoa-Caesar worked as a fellow in advocacy and policy for multiple community organizations.
