Mississippi Rising Coalition faces tough issues in first meeting

Lea Campbell is the founder and leader for the coalition, which also runs campaigns to change the state flag and to fight the Religious Freedom Act that takes effect July 1….

…Ocean Springs resident Bethany Fayard says the coalition will be the go-to organization for many.

“It’s going to combine groups like the Human Rights Campaign, and the Mississippi Rainbow Center, and the other groups on the Gulf Coast to come together to fight these big adversaries like the KKK; which none of us can do probably on our own,” said Fayard.
