TULSA PROJECT INCORPORATED

Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Incorporated in 2006 The Tulsa Project Inc. is the only advocate group for compensating the survivors of America's worst case of domestic terror the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot. Our primary Mission goals are to right this wrong by compensating the living victims (currently 45) and educating the world and cementing this story in our educational systems history classes.

Working in conjunction with the Charles Ogletree led legal team we have worked daily for justice and fair treatment for these victims who were children when this devastation occurred.

In partnership with Mportant Films LLC we created the award winning documentary Before They Die which chronicles, in their own words, the survivors journey for justice through our legal system. Available at http://www.beforetheydiemovie.com

This May 31, 2012 we return to Congress to appear before the House Judiciary Committee to finalize legislation to benefit the survivors of this atrocity as we have every other victim of terrorism in this country's history.

Denied compensation and their day in court for more than 90 years,TPI seeks Congressional action to repair the damage done to the survivors, their families and to the conscious of this country. The destruction of the prestigious Greenwood Oklahoma community also known as Black Wall Street was hidden from from the history books by the perpetrators and the beneficiaries of this planned treachery. Oklahoma has now built a memorial to the victims but has refused to compensate the victims. This is no longer a state matter. This is American history and because of the governments involvement in the Riot and the cover up it is an American concern. This country has a duty to remedy this tragedy.

And to do so...Before They Die!
