Consider teaming up with a local advocacy organization to ensure all Mississippi children have access to a safe, quality education that best fits their family. Be an advocate and voice your support for Mississippi’s children.
Mississippi Center for Justice
The Center supports every student’s right to a good education and that means fighting unjust suspensions and expulsions and keeping students in the classroom where they belong. More than just a law firm, the Center also works with parent advocates to help others know that they have the right to challenge their child’s suspension or expulsion.

The Parents’ Campaign
The Parents’ Campaign ensures a brighter future for Mississippi children by promoting better public schools through parent advocacy. They inform parents of legislation that affects our schools, help them identify and contact their own legislators, and report to them about how their legislators vote on bills that determine the level of education offered their children. By giving parents a means by which their voices can be heard, we are working together to change Mississippi for the better.
