An Equity Profile of Biloxi


Biloxi, Mississippi is becoming increasingly diverse despite experiencing population decline. The city’s diversity can be a tremendous economic asset if people of color are fully included as workers, entrepreneurs, and innovators. By advancing policy strategies to grow good jobs, build healthy communities of opportunity, prevent displacement, and ensure just policing and court systems, Biloxi can put all residents on the path toward reaching their full potential. This equity profile was developed with the support of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to support local community groups, elected officials, planners, business leaders, funders, and others working to build a stronger and more equitable city and region. Read the full profile.
