Mississippi Faith in Action

Mississippi Faith in Action is a coalition of African American churches and clergy working collaboratively on health promotion activities. Mississippi Faith in Action began in a city-wide effort to promote HIV testing, treatment & prevention, and fighting the stigma associated with HIV. In recent years, the coalition has also worked to promote healthy eating, active living, and COVID-19 testing & vaccination.

“WE ARE IN A TIME where we realize how much more we are connected as a community... as individuals and families, we realize it is more than just me as an individual. The decisions we are making are just not about ourselves but about the community at large.”
Director, Health & Health Equity

“THERE IS NO REASON for science to contradict our faith. In fact, I believe... as people of faith, we can operate in that faith, walk in that faith – and do the things necessary in order for us to be healthy and whole.”

“FOR PREGNANT WOMEN, COVID increases the rate of miscarriage and increases the rate of premature birth. For men, COVID can invade the testicles and can lower sperm count. COVID is bad for you, but the vaccines can prevent those things”
