The Tulsa Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is encouraging Tulsans to fill out a "Tulsa Race Relations and History Survey" online.

The survey is intended as a way to plan for future programming for the John Hope Franklin Center for Reconciliation, according to Francisco Trevino, Chamber president. Their goal is to get 5,000 completed surveys from a wide cross-section of Tulsa-area people.

Questions were created to find out how much Tulsans know about the 1921 Race Riot and determine how much the event has impacted residents' current view of race relations in the community.

The survey can be taken at: http://www.zipsurvey.com/LaunchSurvey.aspx?suid=45476&key=D2D6987F.

Trevino encourages Tulsans to forward the survey link to as many people as possible. The link can also be found at the Center's website.

People who want paper copies of the survey should call Jean Neal at 918-295-5009.

Results of the survey will be shared with the public at the 2011 national symposium: "Hope and Healing: Black, White and Native American," held June 1-3.
