About Empower

A solution center, building bridges to change lives.

Our Approach

Empower was built to be different, with laser focus on tackling the biggest issues facing Mississippi. We put people over divisive politics, and work to give voice and hope to those most impacted by public policy decisions.

Solutions Center

We work with citizens, lawmakers and issue experts to identify the most pressing challenges, conduct real world research, and craft workable solutions. Sometimes this means changing laws, while other times it means helping community leaders develop private sector solutions.


In addition to executing sophisticated issue campaigns to raise awareness, we provide a platform for everyday Mississippians to tell their own powerful stories and get engaged so that leaders fully appreciate the impact of their decisions.

Bridge Builder

We believe that regardless of background or political persuasion almost every Mississippian wants a brighter tomorrow for themselves and their families. We will work with anyone committed to moving Mississippi forward.

Empower Mississippi works to Educate, Engage, and Elect Mississippians dedicated to removing barriers to opportunity.
