"Take This Flag Down Mississippi" Rally

  • Mississippi State Capitol 400 High Street Jackson, MS, 39201 United States (map)

The Mississippi Humanist Association (MHA) is partnering with Organizing for America, Indivisible Jackson, and other Mississippi groups to demand a new Mississippi state flag that represents ALL Mississippians. NO Mississippian should look a their state flag and see a symbol of oppression and segregation.

The "Take Down This Flag Mississippi" Rally will take place at 10:00 AM, on Saturday, October 21, in downtown Jackson, at the South Steps of the Capitol. The rally serves to kick off a grassroots campaign to change the Mississippi state flag from a symbol of oppression to one ALL Mississippians can be proud to stand under.

The Mississippi Humanist Association, a chapter of the American Humanist Association, believes the time has long passed to choose a new flag for Mississippi. The official Mississippi state flag is now used as a tool of oppression, often used by Nazis and other hate groups. ALL Mississippians deserve a flag that they can be proud of.
