Common Cause Mississippi is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization. Common Cause Mississippi works to strengthen public participation and ensure that public officials and public institutions are accountable and responsive to citizens. We work to educate the public about issues of government accountability, build coalitions with other advocacy groups, and lobby the Mississippi Legislature on behalf of good government issues like access to the voting booth and keeping government meetings and records open and accessible.
Our organization has been on the front lines of numerous hard fought battles to reform government and the political process. Common Cause Mississippi continues to lead efforts to give ordinary voters a voice in their government, end the stranglehold of big money interests on politics, and put our democracy back into the hands of the people it is meant to serve.
Today, over 400,000 Common Cause members are working together across the nation to make government work for the people. More members mean a stronger voice for the public in local, state and national politics. If you're not already a member we invite you to join us in this work.
