  • To Restore Democracy, Bridgeport is Getting an Election Monitor

    A victory for free and fair elections in Bridgeport passed in the state legislature! For two years, we have pushed for monitoring and oversight over our local elections. Absentee ballot abuse and fraud has a long history in Bridgeport. And we are ready for independent oversight to end it once and for all!
  • Bridgeport Police Chief And Personnel Director Charged With Fraud, False Statements In Connection With City’s Hiring Of The Police Chief

    “What we knew was a scam in 2018 was confirmed with the arrests of Perez and Dunn”

    For seven months during 2018, from May through November, Bridgeport Generation Now led and organized a coalition of community organizations, that included The Council of Churches, Better Bridgeport, ACLU of Connecticut, CONECT and former City Council members Pete Spain and Kyle Langan calling for Mayor Ganim to hold an open and transparent Police Chief Search.

    Our calls for transparency, high standards, and meaningful community engagement were met with indignation, stall tactics and silence at every turn.
  • CALL TO ACTION: Tell Mayor Ganim & City Council - Black Lives Matter!

    Ongoing
    Email our City Council and Mayor to tell them Black Lives Matter and the people of Bridgeport are ready for change!

    The murder of George Floyd is making clear to white people what Black people have known for 400 years: as Co-Director Gemeem Davis said, "that our lives are under constant, violent assault. And in the United States, it's legal." Racism, abuse of power, and corruption of policing is the root cause of violence in our country. And here in Bridgeport, too.

    We are in a state of emergency and it is the people who are demanding change - click the link below to send your emails!
  • Preserve Remington Woods!

    Ongoing
    Remington Woods in Bridgeport is 422 acres of forest community with diverse wildlife that contributes crucial essential services to our human community. It is threatened with destruction, possibly by the end of this year.

    Remington Woods is now zoned for "Industrial Use." That must be changed! You can go to "Zone Bridgeport" website and make your voice heard in five simple steps!
