Starting Nov. 4, 2019, 168 Days of Remembrance are being held for the victims of the Oklahoma City Bombing. Day One included the Day One Luncheon – marking the beginning of the 168 Days of Remembrance. It was an inspiring day of Looking Back and Thinking Forward.

Attendees heard from Survivor and Trustee Polly Nichols and Sara Sweet, whose father W. Stephen Williams was killed in the bombing. They shared their first person stories of April 19, 1995. Co-chairs Mike Turpen and Sally Starling introduced the Looking Back, Thinking Forward Fund – a $14 million campaign to sustain the ongoing work of the Memorial and Museum.

The Remembrance leads up to April 19, 2020, the 25th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building.
