Marquise Hunt is president of the Mississippi State Conference Youth & College of the NAACP. His involvement in the organization began as a national competitor in the ACT-SO Program. A year later, he got more involved on a local level and was eventually elected president of the Tougaloo College chapter. With his guidance, the chapter was able to successfully be a partner in the #IAmAnImmigrant campaign which encourages all Americans to celebrate the monumental contributions that immigrants have made — and continue to make every day. Marquise later became one of the youth organizers for the 'March on Mississippi' which was a campaign launched to give Nissan (Canton, MS) employees a chance to decide without fear and intimidation whether to be represented by a union. This event led to the end of voter suppression at Nissan and for all employers across Mississippi.
