TULSA, Okla. – Deborah Fritts, a Cherokee Nation Businesses employee, recently joined Tulsa’s Resilient Advisors on Racial Equity.

Tulsa became part of the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities program in 2015. As part of the program, the advisory committee develops strategies addressing physical, social and economic challenges facing Tulsa.

“I am incredibly honored and humbled to be asked to serve in this capacity,” Fritts said. “The spirit of Tulsa is built on resiliency, and it is a trait shared by the Cherokee people. However, there is always more work to be done, and we must all do our part to stay engaged in our communities and informed on the issues impacting our fellow residents. I’m thankful for the opportunity to serve on this committee and look forward to the positive impact we can have on our city.”

Fritts has worked at CNB for 13 years and manages the Cherokee Art Market.
