The P.O.P. Movement is a multi-culture, humanitarian economic movement. P.O.P. stands for, "Prosperity Over Poverty," and that's our main goal. April 1-2, 2023, we will be semi launching a Massive Community Restoration & Job Creation Project in the form of a campaign poised to bring substantial, quantifiable change to impoverished communities across the country. Our goal is to create a minimum of 1,000,000 Jobs and 200,000 entrepreneurs nationwide by 2027. We will be opening P.O.P. New Day Business Resource and Market Centers mainly in impoverish communities within every 10-25 miles radius beginning in the state of Mississippi.
The P.O.P. 360 Community Restoration & Job Creation Project continues a Legacy of Hope. Our goal is to provide communities with the means to stimulate our country's economy, returning it to its former greatness and beyond. We provide a financial education to individuals in disadvantaged communities, including middle class communities filled with the working poor due to the continued rise in inflation and tax law changes that have affected the economy in the past and present.
We will be officially launching, October 23, 2023 from the capitol of the #1 economically poorest state, Mississippi. Our Campaign Slogan is “Why We Can’t Wait Any Longer to Choose Prosperity -Over-Poverty. We need your assistance and support. We are asking that all Mississippians to take the lead in this campaign. We are Moving Forward & Demanding Prosperity.
Our ultimate goal in this campaign aims to help aspiring entrepreneurs get their businesses set up properly and thriving enough to hire employees or hire additional employees that come from our job readiness training program. We focus on helping individuals achieve financial stability.
We are creating different types of campaigns to help bring in operating funds to support our mission and vision. We are not government funded and we have built a self-sustainable system which allows these individuals to Do For Self.
The P.O.P. Movement had the privilege of being place in the History Museum during the state of Mississippi 200 year bicentennial as of December 9-2017 because of our concepts use in teaching self-sustainability is based on the teachings of I.T. Montgomery and Benjamin Green the founder & Co-founder of the City of Mound Bayou, Ms., where the initial training was implemented. As of September 1, 2017, the P.O.P. move its home office to 901 Forest Street, Shelby, MS 38774, due to severe weather damage our building experienced. May 2019, we had to move again due to roof damage and later fire damage. We are presently operating in Cleveland, Ms.
Our founders believe that if we take the power of the people and connect it to the power of pennies, we can have prosperity over poverty. The power of pennies is that everyone pays a little, and our collective strength provides us with what we need. The P.O.P. Job Creation Campaign for Success exists because "we the people" had to find new ways to assist Americans in helping themselves economically.
The P.O.P. Job Creation Campaign for Success continues a legacy of hope. Our goal is to provide communities with the means to stimulate our country's economy, returning it to its former greatness and beyond. We provide a financial education to individuals in disadvantaged communities, including middle class communities filled with the working poor due to the continued rise in inflation and tax law changes that have affected the economy in the past and present.
We accept donations. Your generous assistance brings our vision to life and makes economic stability a reality for many Americans. We provide financial literacy seminars to churches and other organizations that donate a minimum of $100 towards our goal.
Mississippi, our #I economically poorest state according to the 2020 Census Bureau Report needs our help and yours. In January of 2021, census data reported more than 711,476 Mississippians were recipients of the SNAP benefit. We had an unemployment rate of 6.8%, which is higher than the national average of 5%. Of those who were gainfully employed, more than 47.3% had jobs in the small business sector. In 2020, The Sentencing Project reported Mississippi's ex-offender population at 290,079. Previously incarcerated persons, even those with higher learning, tend to lose hope in becoming valued members of society. This is particularly due to background restrictions enforced by many employers. Creating jobs that will hire this population will offer hope to many.
Through our Community Restoration & Job Creation Initiatives, every community/zip code can now focus on the need in that community. Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Alabama have been chosen as the ground zero states for this project to begin.If you know of any one that is a community activist or leader, please inform them of this movement that is taking place so that they can help their community to move forward.
