Our Story

Our Story

Over the past forty years, entrenched systemic injustices in Bridgeport broke our civic institutions, our grassroots leadership, and our people power. Decades of corruption and systemic racism are directly tied to economic inequality in Bridgeport. Community power continues to be closely held in the hands of a few, and distributed by politically motivated gatekeepers.

So, in the early winter of 2016, a diverse group of ten people came together and started meeting to form Bridgeport Generation Now, with the simple vision and commitment that we needed to take some kind of positive action if we wanted to be the change we wished to see in our city.
