Today, we celebrate the one year anniversary of the birth of the Mississippi Justice Institute.
One Year Ago
Today, we celebrate the one year anniversary of the birth of the Mississippi Justice Institute. We created MJI on February 1, 2016, as a division of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy with its purpose to fight for and defend the Constitutional rights of all Mississippians!
In just 365 days, we have been able to do more than many of our counterparts around the country.
Defending Religious Freedom
When threatened with a lawsuit from an out-of-state atheist group, we stood up for a local school district and high school football coach who dared to practice his faith with football players during their own time and away from school grounds.Details Here
Pursuing the American Dream
We have fought for the right of taxi cab drivers who don't want a handout but simply want an opportunity to start their own small business and live the American dream, but are prevented from doing so by outdated, anti-competitive local regulations.Details Here
Fighting for Parents & Students
We continue to fight for parents of children who are attending charter public schools, who just want the right to escape failing schools, have a choice in deciding what is best for their children and receive a quality education.Details Here
Advocating for Government Transparency
And finally we are fighting for transparency in government, representing local folks who want their government to simply follow the law and conduct public meetings openly. We're fighting for transparency with cases in Columbus and Lauderdale County.Details Here And Here
