Featured NonProfit: Midsouth Peace and Justice

Featured Nonprofit: Mid-South Peace and Justice Center

Get to know Mid-South Peace and Justice Center, the non-profit recipient of our Positive Change Jar for the month of October. Mid-South Peace and Justice Center is a multi-issue, multi-race organization whose mission is to engage, organize, and mobilize communities to realize social justice through nonviolent action. For 35 years, they have worked to educate and train new community leaders to lead campaigns for racial, economic, environmental and social justice. Current programs work to assist the diverse needs of impoverished communities and address the root causes of injustice in Memphis. They believe the response to the challenge of violence can only be found by addressing inter-related causes of injustice such as poverty, racism, and unequal access to resources necessary to meet basic human needs.

At Muddy’s, we don’t accept tips for our service or charge for drip coffee refills; we believe in thriveable wages for great work and we fundraise for local nonprofits through our "Refill Our Community With Positive Change" jar. Each month our staff selects a Memphis non-profit organization, and 100% of those community funds go to support their mission. This month will be donated to Mid-South Peace and Justice Center. Learn more about them here.

You can participate by, of course, throwing some change in the jar, but also by nominating a nonprofit that's making a difference in our community!
