MISSISSIPPI RISING COALITION is a multiracial, multigenerational grassroots non-partisan organization based in South Mississippi comprised of residents and ally and affinity organizations which support our collective vision.


Our goal is to facilitate the state of Mississippi’s rise from the bottom to the top of the list of quality of life metrics by empowering individuals and communities through community organizing, popular education, mutual aid, coalition-building, direct action and advocacy in the areas of human rights and social justice, and by increasing citizen engagement in the governance of our state.
