Oklahoma HB2091 was introduced by Representative O'Donnell and co-sponsored by Senator Leewright seeking to amend current state legislation to add two tribal representatives to Oklahoma's Domestic Violence Fatality Review Board (DVFRB). This effort would not have been possible without the tremendous support of Rep. O'Donnell and was spear-headed through a collaborative effort by Muscogee (Creek) Nation Prosecutor Shelly Harrison, the Muscogee (Creek) Family Violence Prevention Program and the Native Alliance Against Violence. This legislation is being supported by tribes including resolutions from both the Inter-Tribal Council of the Five Tribes and the Muscogee (Creek) Nation's National Council. The bill unanimously passed the House and has moved on to the Senate.
