MSBWR 2024 Legislative Agenda

Every gain made towards economic security supports Black women in Mississippi with more freedom to pursue their dreams for themselves and their families. Following 2023’s legislative victory in the passage of 12-month postpartum maternal Medicaid coverage in Mississippi, our sights are set even higher in 2024.

While we have no doubt Black women will continue their determination to excel in Mississippi, these policies will help families move even further towards security. Your support can make the difference: get engaged, and take your seat at the table where decisions are made.
