MISSISSIPPI RISING COALITION is a non-profit, non-partisan, all-volunteer grassroots organization based on the Mississippi Gulf Coast comprised of citizens 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, education, coalition-building and advocacy in the areas of human and civil rights and social justice, and by increasing citizen engagement in the democratic processes of our state.
