Communities all along the Mississippi River are disproportionately and unjustly impacted by pollution, public health disparities, and economic injustices, often communities of color.
The Mississippi River Network (MRN) works for the well-being of the people, land, water, and wildlife of America’s largest watershed.
MRN lovingly labors to protect, restore, enjoy, and sustainably develop, the MIssissippi River, the water that brings life to the region, the lands through which it flows, and the wildlife that shares it and relies on its well-being.
Environmental issues and racial issues are linked, as minority communities often suffer most from exploitation of the land and other resources. The Jonah Maccabee Foundation’s support for the Mississippi River Network reflects Jonah’s profound love for people and the giant blue marble that gave him life and all of us as well.
We’re honored to make this grant from our Fund for Racial Justice.

As always, we simply could not do this without your support. Thank you for your donations that make our involvement possible.
