Our Approach

Empower was built to be different, with laser focus on tackling the biggest challenges 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.


We provide a platform for ordinary citizens to tell their own powerful stories and engage in the legislative process so that policy leaders fully appreciate the impact of their decisions.

Bridge Builder

Every Mississippian wants a brighter future, so we work with people of goodwill from all political backgrounds and both sides of the aisle to solve problems, create solutions, and move Mississippi forward.

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