About Bridgeport Generation Now:

Bridgeport Generation Now is a nonpartisan, grassroots social action network with over 200 members that empowers and unites our communities by increasing civic engagement. We encourage residents and our youth to take an active role in strengthening Bridgeport. We are open to all residents of Bridgeport, and anyone can be a member if they get involved in the community and show that they care about the future of our city! Our 2019 work includes:

  • The annual 2-day, free "Civics 101 Workshop" dedicated to civic education for all people
  • A monthly "Boards & Commissions Workshop" to educate and assist people on the City's Boards and Commission application process
  • BPT Votes!, a nonpartisan voter engagement campaign dedicated to increasing voter education, participation, and turnout during elections
  • Our Policy & Research Platform, a grassroots policy platform researched and built by our members to drive issue-based civic engagement
  • Candidate Forums and Town Halls

In Gen Now, we focus on policy research, civic and political education, and community organizing. Our collective work lives at the intersection of community building, systems change, and self-determination. Our current organizing frames are democratic empowerment, good governance, justice, equity, and livability. Our vision is to collectively develop into local leaders who practice intersectionality, collective action, openness, ethics, and love.
