Mississippi Safe Schools Coalition

Vision: MSSC seeks to act as organizing body, leadership development organization, and vehicle to support and advocate for LGBTQ youth in Mississippi. MSSC seeks a diverse coalition membership in order to build statewide visibility and the support needed to achieve its mission.

Impact: MSSC trains students and allies to make schools safer while fighting for long-term policy change. Since 2008, The Safe Schools Coalition has worked directly with young people to build programs, events, and partnerships that reflect and work to address the needs of its communities from Cleveland to Gulfport.
