About The Mississippi Center for Public Policy

The Mississippi Center for Public Policy (MCPP) is an independent, non-profit, public policy organization based in Jackson, MS. MCPP works to promote and protect the concepts of free markets, limited government, and strong families.

MCPP is an independent organization, but it is a member of the State Policy Network, which is comprised of state-based think tanks around the country that approach issues from a limited government and free-market perspective.

Mississippi Justice Institute

The Mississippi Justice Institute (MJI) was founded by MCPP in 2016 to be its legal arm representing Mississippians whose state or federal Constitutional rights have been threatened by government actions.

MJI’s activities include direct litigation on behalf of individuals, intervening in cases important to public policy, participating in regulatory and rule making proceedings, and filing amicus, or “friend of the Court,” briefs to offer unique perspectives on significant legal matters in Mississippi and Federal courts.

We are supported by voluntary, tax-deductible contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations. To find out how you can support MCPP’s work, visit our contributions page.
