For nearly 25 years, you have helped us REMEMBER those who were killed, HONOR those who survived and THANK those changed forever on April 19, 1995.

As a survivor, it's so important to me that we remain relevant for future generations.
— Polly Nichols, OKC Bombing Survivor

Now, we want to continue to use what we’ve learned – and what we have created together – to share these lessons with even more people. Our world is hurting, and no institution is more perfectly positioned to help others discover strength in brokenness, courage in grief and resolve in pain.

Through comprehensive curriculum and cutting-edge new programs designed for young and old alike, we can become a global thought leader on healing, forgiveness, strength and resilience in the wake of tragedy.

An ambitious vision.

In 2010, the Oklahoma legislature passed progressive legislation to teach the story of the OKC bombing in the classroom along with the lessons of remembering, resilience and respect. A workshop will be held for high school history teachers to provide resources to help teach this important subject. Posters will be created to display in schools.

In addition to two interactive Uncover Discover STEM Lab Lessons, a new lesson – Weather & Environmental Science – will allow students to manipulate atmospheric variables, discovering how engineers fought against the elements to stabilize an already unsteady building in the aftermath of the bombing.

Weekly tours led by key stakeholders and those closest to the story. Tour guides could include Justice Steven Taylor, Governor Frank Keating, Mayor Ron Norick, Fire Chief Gary Marrs, Police Chief Bill Citty, past Foundation Board Chairmen, members of the media who covered the bombing, family members, survivors, first responders and members of other professions who helped the city turn our tragedy into triumph.

Called2Change gives students an opportunity to experience a state-of-the-art augmented reality program and visit the Memorial and Museum.

Better Conversations teaches students and adults how to resolve conflicts peacefully by looking at how conversations work – listening carefully, changing the questions we ask and how we ask them.

The Oklahoma Standard encourages children and adults alike to engage in acts of service, honor and kindness – personally adopting the Oklahoma Standard established 25 years ago.

The best way to honor our past is by thinking forward.
— Bob Ross, Foundation Chairman
