Mississippi activists are working on a coalition of groups which will hold monthly rallies at the Capitol, similar to what other states are doing.  So far there have been two, on 2/27/14 and 3/13/14.  The first rally was heavily supported by teacher's groups who were pushing for an education bill.

From the Facebook group page:

"For all who want to see legislation that is ethical, not pandering to favored groups, but beneficial to all. Boots on the ground are wonderful, but so are keyboard and telephone activists who will speak out against unethical bills and actions and let your state senator and representative know that you are watching what they do, that you will support his ethical votes but not his unethical ones, and you will support his opponent in the next election if he is habitually unethical."

I'm glad to see this, many of us have been working on coalition-building here, I have hope that this is the beginning of a state-wide, focused push for progressive legislation.

DISCLAIMER: I did not choose the name "Ethical Thursdays" so please do not fuss at me about it.  ;)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
