The following is a recent interview with David Blatt, executive director of OK Policy, on the importance of family economic security in Oklahoma.
An Advocate for Economic Security A Conversation with David Blatt In a small office in Tulsa, Oklahoma, sits a gentleman fervently reviewing state economic policy and the latest legislation impacting families in the state of Oklahoma. David Blatt, now serving as the executive director of the Oklahoma Policy Institute (OK Policy), recently sat down with First Nations Development Institute staff to discuss why he is part of a growing movement for asset-building programs and financial education for Oklahoman families.
Blatt is recognized as one of the state's leading experts on financial policy, and he has been with the Oklahoma Policy Institute since it was founded in 2008.
Blatt: I believe that all families should have access to assets.
Blatt: If you are going to have success in any community, you need asset-building programs. Everyone needs access to housing, education, healthcare and financial resources. Building assets leads to the reduction of poverty.
First Nations: What hope will Oklahoma Assets provide to families and communities in Oklahoma?
Blatt: We can bring partners together to make a difference.
