Mississippi Rising Coalition is an advocate for the citizens of Mississippi and supports civil, productive discussion with our elected representatives at the state and federal level. Amid growing concerns about the future of healthcare, our coastal environment and economy, our immigrant friends and the increasing frequency of misinformation coming from the current Trump administration, the citizens of the Gulf Coast requested a town hall meeting with our Congressional delegation. All three representatives, Sen. Roger Wicker, Sen. Thad Cochran and Rep. Steven Palazzo, declined their constituents’ invitation to attend the town hall, but the event went on without them, giving constituents an opportunity to publicly voice their concerns.
