Bridgeport Anti-Racism Collective

Bridgeport Anti-Racism Collective

Organized by CTCORE-Organize Now, Bridgeport Generation Now, and Make The Road CT, Bridgeport Anti-Racism Collective (BARC) is an anti-racist community. We meet to discuss anti-racist awareness, research, vision, and action in our lives in the United States, in Connecticut, and in Bridgeport. Our meetings are on the first Wednesday of every month and are open to all who wish to be in this work. We define anti-racism as the practice of rejecting, resisting, undoing, interrupting and challenging bias and racist ideas, systems, and hierarchies, both internally and externally. Our Three Principles Are:
  • A commitment to anti-racism (how we are in this work)
  • Understanding anti-racism and what it means to us (what this work is)
  • Our roles in anti-racism (how we act in this work)

Bridgeport Anti-Racism Collective is co-organized and sponsored by Bridgeport Generation Now.

Bridgeport Student Voice

Bridgeport Student Voice is a student-geared civic engagement group dedicated to harnessing the voice of Bridgeport residents to fight against the stereotypes that plague our city, influence policy to grant Bridgeport schools equal and equitable funding.

Bridgeport students will be inspired, engaged, and informed, changing the narrative of how our schools are viewed, creating a permanent seat at the table to ensure that Bridgeport students are heard, and our schools are more equitably funded.

Founded by Youth Member Julie Hajducky and supported by our Intern Tiana Krause, Bridgeport Student Voice is getting ready to launch in January 2019!
