Mississippi Center for Justice

The Project to Advance Legal and Policy Advocacy in Mississippi, of the Mississippi Center for Justice, is fighting the discriminatory practices that make it harder for people living with HIV to obtain affordable housing, maintain employment, and protect their right to privacy. The project is continuing to expand the Center’s capacity to address unmet legal needs of people living with HIV through continued partnership with service providers and advocates in the medical and social services communities.

In the coming year, we will continue to support our medical-legal partnership project, create an advisory council to engage people living with HIV the in planning and implementation of all advocacy efforts, and integrate of voter mobilization initiatives project activities. This will strengthen the Center’s statewide capacity to develop a coordinated approach to advocating for the legal rights and protections of people living with HIV.
