Mississippi Rising Coalition

Mississippi Rising Coalition (MRC) is a multiracial, multigenerational, non-partisan, grassroots organization based in South Mississippi. We mobilize people and resources to improve the well-being, quality of life, and political power of marginalized Mississippians. 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 governance processes of our state.
