In the late 1980’s, Tunica was known as “Sugar Ditch Alley because of the open raw sewage system that ran alongside the homes of many of the county’s residents. It is now a casino city and the fifth largest gaming market in the United States. Despite this progress, Tunica is still plagued with racial, social, and economic disparities that are mirrored throughout all of our communities.
Our leadership believed it was critically important to convene a policy conference in the Mississippi delta. So, every year since our inception we bring community leaders, elected officials and power brokers here to Tunica to engage in conversations about our plight with the hopes of educating motivating and spurring aging each other to action.
FROM SUGAR DITCH TO THE FIFTH-LARGEST GAMING MARKET IN THE U.S
Tunica is the perfect example for happens when organizations, governments and citizens come together to discuss current public policy challenges and forge a way forward to make real change.
