FaithActs for Education is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The faith-based group has received more than 1,000 voting commitments from registered Bridgeport voters.

“We’ve underinvested in Bridgeport kids for generations,” said FaithActs’ Executive Director Jamilah Prince-Stewart. “Elected officials have the power to change this, and we want our members and committed voters to know where all the candidates stand on the issues–especially education.”

The “2018 Voter Guide” includes profiles for all of the candidates who will appear on a Bridgeport ballot on November 6, 2018, plus sample ballots from every Bridgeport polling place and information about the two ballot questions that will be voted on. A Spanish-language version will also be available soon.

Candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, U.S. Senator, Representative in Congress, State Senator, State Representative, Treasurer, Comptroller, Secretary of the State, and Attorney General responded to FaithActs’ questionnaire and appear in the “2018 Voter Guide.”

“The overwhelming response from candidates demonstrates how important Bridgeport is to Connecticut, in this and all elections,” said Prince-Stewart. “This is why Bridgeporters must get out the vote on November 6th.”

Every candidate was invited to answer a questionnaire and appear in the “2018 Voter Guide.” Candidates’ views are presented for informational purposes only. Candidates who declined to respond are noted.

“FaithActs doesn’t endorse any candidate or party–we just want Bridgeport voters to claim their power and vote,” said Prince-Stewart. “Our message is simple: If you don’t vote, they don’t listen.”

Founded in October 2014, FaithActs is more than 450 members and 50 churches strong. We are people of faith building power to get our children the education they deserve. We’ve turned out hundreds of Bridgeport voters, published a Bridgeport voter guide, demanded stronger governance from the Board of Education, prevented busing cuts for 2,300 elementary school students, and secured additional education funding at the state and local levels./blockquote>



  1. “The organization’s rhetoric goes on to say that, “created as a 501(c)3 Foundation,” FaithActs receives funding from various foundations and individuals, although, to date, it has failed to reveal which foundations or individuals are underwriting the organization’s lobbying and advocacy activities”.
