We respect and uphold the identities of all people across cultural, gender, sexual, racial and national lines as we believe in justice.
We believe in and absolutely support young people and their ability to co-create a meaningful and impactful framework that is driven and led by them.
We believe in and absolutely support gender equity in our processes.
We oppose oppressive, violent and dehumanizing language and behaviors.
We believe that every Mississippian deserves the chance for a quality education, a job that pays a livable wage, decent housing on a safe street, affordable and accessible healthcare, and the right to be treated with dignity and respect.
We believe persistent poverty, particularly among children, is morally abhorrent and fiscally inefficient. Stopping the intergenerational transmission of poverty must be an economic and humanitarian imperative.
We believe healthy policymaking processes demands wider engagement in vigorous, data-driven, and constructive public discourse about these and other critical issues facing Mississippians.
