About Us

We are a predominately African American Community in Pike County, MS under siege by Big Chicken. Mr. Le and Sanderson’s Farms want to put a factory chicken operation in our community that will house almost a million birds a year and generate over 4.5million pounds of chicken excrement a year.

Purpose

The page is to bring awareness to the growing trend of putting large factory chicken operations in rural, low income, and minority communities.
