Community Solar Project
Steps Coalition in collaboration with the Mississippi Chapter of the Sierra Club and the Gulf Coast Community Foundation, is in the process of developing a 1.5mw Community Solar Farm that will ultimately provide an affordable, renewable energy source to LMI communities within Mississippi Power’s service area on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Census2020 Complete Count Initiative
Steps Coalition in collaboration with several of our community-based partner organizations is leading a Complete Count Initiative to ensure that all Mississippi Gulf Coast residents are accurately counted in the 2020 Census so that our communities receive the funding and representation to which they are entitled.
Racial Healing Initiative
During 2020, Steps has a goal of training 10 “Racial Healing Facilitators” and hosting several “Racial Healing Circles” across the three coastal counties – Hancock, Harrison, and Jackson – so that our community members can learn to be intentional about acknowledging the hurts and wrongs of our past and plot a course for a brighter future.
