My Focus

Volunteering may have positive benefits for the volunteer as well as for the person or community served. It is also intended to make contacts for employment. Many volunteers are specifically trained in the areas they work, such as medicine or education.

As Democrats, education is our top priority. In the words of Governor William Winter, we believe the only road out of poverty runs through the schoolhouse doors. That’s why we fully support fully funding, adequately and equitably our public schools to give teachers and students the resources they need to succeed.
Furthermore, we believe in keeping college affordable and support efforts to keep debt from being a barrier to a degree. We support workforce development programs at our community colleges.

he Mississippi Democratic Party supports the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act and opposes any repeal or expiration of these laws. We believe that voting is the right of all citizens, and that nothing should prohibit the free exercise of the right to vote and the expansion to the right to vote.

The Mississippi Democratic Party supports equality for all regardless of race, color, class, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, population, national origin, immigrant status, disability, or appearance. The family is the cornerstone of our society, the building block of our civilization. Whatever the form of the family, the Democratic Party realizes the value of human relationships and supports all committed loving couples. We believe that all Mississippians deserve to be treated equally and fairly and free from harassment. That is why we oppose discriminatory laws that divide our communities in any way.

We support and promote policies that strengthen women’s economic security, including, but not limited to, support for family caregiving, access to affordable health care and child care, equal wages, stronger protections for domestic violence and sexual assault, affordable housing, and higher education. We support a woman’s right to privacy in making her own health care decisions.
