Marine Cleanup initiative, Inc. 

MCII is a registered non-profit organization incorporated in the state of Florida. Our mission is to protect, conserve, restore and enhance watershed, coastal, and marine habitats and ecosystems.

We work with volunteers, chapter organizers, businesses, and local communities with recreational and commercial interests to remove marine debris, detritus, invasive species, and other forms of pollution using public outreach, educational programs, and grassroots projects to improve commitment to keep our waters clean, safe and healthy.

The National Women In Agriculture Association (NWIAA) was founded and established in February 2008 by Dr. Tammy Gray-Steele, our Executive Director. The organization is headquartered in Oklahoma City, OK. NWIAA is an agriculture outreach, fueled by sisterhood, need, and diversity. NWIAA believes rural women, especially minority women, have been neglected; the lack of resources has stagnated rural development nationwide. NWIAA is the first minority woman-owned and operated organization that provides innovative outreach education that attracts and sustains current and future generations with its innovative, spiritual, and USDA certified education techniques. The NWIAA Mississippi Chapter was established in July 2011. The NWIAA Alabama Chapter was established in August 2011.​ Soon, other chapters began springing up all over our great nation!
