The mission of Mississippi First is to advocate the best public policy solutions and to revitalize Mississippi’s democracy. We seek to partner with policy makers, politicians, and the public to identify priority problems, research solutions, advocate for our recommendations, and evaluate the implementation of relevant policies.
Mississippi First is a non-partisan, non-profit organization specializing in education policy research and advocacy. We have had our 501c3 status since 2009 and are in good standing with the Mississippi Secretary of State's Charities Enforcement Division.
