Our Revolution Endorses Mark Henricksen for Oklahoma Democratic Party State Chair

WASHINGTON-- Our Revolution on Thursday endorsed Mark Henricksen for Chair of the Oklahoma Democratic Party. 

“The political decisions that most directly impact the day-to-day life of individuals often occur at the local level, which is why we’re focusing our energy there,” said Our Revolution Political Director Erika Andiola. “Mark Henricksen is a trial lawyer with 39 years of experience in state and federal courts and former Bernie Sanders delegate who has spent his life working towards a more just Oklahoma. We’re proud to endorse him for Oklahoma’s Democratic Party State Chair.”

Henricksen’s work defending individuals facing capital punishment and protecting the First Amendment has earned him recognition by the ACLU and various prominent civil rights organizations. Henricksen serves on ACLU’s Oklahoma Board of Directors and Freedom Oklahoma’s national board.

“Oklahoma Democrats deserve a chair who will stand on the front lines in the fight for social, economic, racial, and environmental justice,” Andiola added. “Henricksen will do just that-- and we are proud to endorse him.”
