The Fight is in Mississippi

In Mississippi, 48% of our population, 1.3 million people, are considered poor or low-wealth.

The Poor People’s Campaign is not talking about the middle class, we’re talking to the 1.2 million people who are poor and low-wealth. We’re not talking about main street, we’re talking about back rural roads in Mississippi.

Political education goes along with mutual aid.
