We are building Beloved Bridgeport.
When you care about where you live, you build community. In Bridgeport, we are a diverse people with a long history of caring for our families and neighborhoods. Our connections to one another are long and strong. We love the Park City and want our children to have a good education, safe streets, affordable housing, a police department that respects us, and a thriving democracy and economy that delivers for our people.
Foundational to building Beloved Bridgeport is an electoral process and city government that is fully responsive to and empowering of its people.
To get us there, the Unrig Bridgeport Coalition commits to advancing the following policy proposals, which are centered around four key pillars: Justice and Equity, Pro-Democracy, Anti-Corruption, and Good Government. All candidates running for public office in Bridgeport are asked to join us in pledging to do the same.
By pledging to The People’s Platform in this municipal election, City Council candidates and voters commit to policies and best practices that uphold democracy – and free us from systemic corruption and political patronage.
The time is now to get this right. Together, we can #UnrigBridgeport and build a more just, equitable, and livable city for all.
