Nearly 30 years ago, the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy was
created as a result of a terrible exposé, “Oklahoma’s Shame,” which
uncovered horrible maltreatment of Oklahoma juveniles in state custody.
During that process, OICA became the voice for Oklahoma’s children,
calling for specific reform and greater accountability to better protect
the life of a child. Today, we continue to be that voice, leveraging
our expert knowledge and relationships with policymakers to ensure
policy solutions are rooted in the best interest of the child.
