Alliance Capitol Day - a BUSY day!

We were so proud to have our inaugural Nonprofit Civic Engagement Collective (the Collective) cohort join us to represent the Alliance and their own organizations at our Capitol Day this year.

It was a busy day! We watched Mississippi Harm Reduction Initiative give a press conference on the south steps; we were introduced on the Senate floor; we joined the Care4Mississippi coalition luncheon and press conference; and had a vibrant discussion of the legislative process at the Capital Club. Through all this, we were able to witness advocacy efforts in real time.

Learn more about the Alliance's Nonprofit Civic Action Collective (NCEC) here > lnkd.in/g_KPC2aE

If interested in applying for our 2025 cohort, email Jamie Rasberry, Director, Policy and Strategic Partnerships at jamie.rasberry@alliancems.org.
