Mississippi Poultry Workers for Equality and Respect (MPOWER)

02.05.08 / by

I’ve been working on a project for MPOWER, a Workers’ Center in Morton, MS. According to their site, they are:

…a membership-based workers’ center that works to build healthy communities by promoting economic and social justice in the state’s poultry producing region and workplaces. We are a collaboration of poultry workers of diverse backgrounds, civil rights and immigrants’ rights organizations, religious leaders, labor unions, employment justice groups, and other community partners.

They had an old, hand-coded website that was difficult for them to maintain and update. Not to mention a stingy web host. They also wanted to consolidate and organize their data in a more useful way (Five excel sheets floating around causes problems). So, I redesigned their site, installed a new content management system (Drupal), and a new “Constituent Relationship Management” system, CiviCRM. Hosting was provided free by Higher Media (Thanks Neil! Check out his new documentary Our Bombs).
