About Us

We believe when people and organizations come together,
we can make real positive changes.

1 Mississippi was established in 2009 to organize people dedicated to protecting the Mississippi River into a national constituency of River Citizens. River Citizens live in all 50 states, take simple actions to improve the River and advocate for River protections to local and national decision makers.

MN-1MissPaddle_handsinThe Mississippi River Network (MRN) established the 1 Mississippi campaign to support River Citizens through education, inspiration and opportunities to embrace the Mississippi River. MRN is a coalition of 50 nonprofit organizations and businesses working together to protect the land, water and people of the United States’ greatest River.

The Mississippi River Network and 1 Mississippi are brought to you by the Walton Family Foundation and the McKnight Foundation.
