This video, narrated by Mississippi's own Morgan Freeman, highlights the legacy of civil rights pioneers whose inspirational work is the cornerstone of the Center's mission to transform Mississippi into an exemplary social justice state. This debuted during the Tenth Anniversary Champions of Justice Dinner, honoring Fred L. Banks, Jr. and Joy Lambert Phillips, on Thursday, October 10, 2013.
The Center’s foreclosure prevention team handled 550 of 1,192 cases as a Mississippi Foreclosure Prevention Consortium member, between July 2012 and June 2013. The Consortium was created through funding provided under the National Mortgage Settlement with the nation's five largest mortgage servicers over foreclosure abuses and fraud, and unacceptable mortgage servicing practices.
