About Bridgeport Generation Now Votes

Bridgeport Generation Now Votes is on a mission to increase voter turnout in Bridgeport elections. Key to that work is educating the public about political candidates, public officials and what their public service record actually is, not what they want people to believe.

We are a nonprofit, non-partisan group. We fight for truth and transparency in our local government often in the face of intense pushback from political operatives that want to keep power concentrated in the hands of the few politically “connected.”

We are fully empowered and do support issues that align with the values, principles and work that Bridgeport Generation Now has been advocating for since day one of our inception.

WE:

• Educate and organize Bridgeport residents

• Engage, inform, register and mobilize voters

• Advocate and promote anti-corruption policies on the city, state and national level

• Inform voters about candidates record of corruption and/or anti-corruption

• Stand in solidarity with democracy reformers and social justice partners fighting to uphold democratic norms
