We Keep Us Safe

We must reimagine public safety and reinvest in communities. Mississippi and the nation has a violent history of abuse and killings of indigenous, black and cash poor people. The killings of Johnathan Sanders, Rexel Henry, Andre Jones, Willie Jones, Jr. and countless others are state sanctioned murders rooted in the failure of decades of commissions, investigations, police reforms, and oversight to prevent their deaths.

Strong Arms of JXN Credible Messenger Initiative

The credible messenger philosophy test on the belief that the answers to our problems are in our community and those of us closest to the pain, are closest to the solution. A Credible Messenger is a person indigenous to the community that oftentimes has lived experience similar to the young person they are mentoring and supporting.
