About Us

Our work supports community efforts to reduce anti-LGBT bias in public schools and communities throughout Mississippi. Although the primary focus of MSSC is sexual orientation and gender identity issues, we recognize the harm caused by harassment, violence, and discrimination of all kinds.

MSSC seeks a diverse coalition membership in order to build the kind of statewide visibility and support needed to achieve its mission. MSSC members represent a broad cross-section of students, educators, community members and businesses in Mississippi. Membership is open to any organization, school district, agency, business, or individual that supports the mission of the MSSC.

Vision

We believe that in order for us to see true change that has long-term and short-term effects on our communities, we must be able to share our vision for how our work fits into the greater movement work happening in our state, region, and country. In 2016 we will be releasing our organization's theory of change.
