FaithActs leaders Jamilah Prince-Stewart and Pastor William McCullough.

In advance of Tuesday’s election, FaithActs For Education has updated its voter guide. News release:

FaithActs for Education, a Black-led, faith-based community organizing nonprofit based in Connecticut, released their updated voter guides for Bridgeport, Hartford, and New Haven ahead of the general election on Tuesday, November 2nd.

The non-partisan voter guides:
● Feature profiles for every candidate running in the general election
● Include sample ballots for every polling place
● Are bilingual, with easy translation navigation for English and Spanish speakers
● Are published online for widespread access to constituents:,,

These voter guides empower voters to be as informed as possible when walking into the ballot box. They are a part of a nonpartisan Faith Votes Campaign to activate 5,000 voters in this year’s elections. Importantly, FaithActs has expanded their nonpartisan voter education and turnout campaign beyond Bridgeport into Hartford and New Haven. Voters can commit to vote at to receive sample ballots, and personalized voting reminders. Voters can also schedule free rides to and from the polls by calling 203-868-0443, or emailing

Consisting of 500 members and 70 churches across the state, to date FaithActs has won stronger governance and transparency from Bridgeport’s Board of Education, turned out thousands of committed voters, and in the 2021 legislative session secured a $160 million increase in state funding for education.

The Faith Votes Campaign grew from FaithActs members’ frustration with candidates cycling through places of worship every election year to court votes but, once in office, failing to deliver much for their communities.

The Faith Votes Campaign works to create a culture of informed voting. In partnership with pastors and churches, FaithActs will:

● Secure voting commitments from thousands of congregation members
● Make sure committed voters are registered and know where, when, and how to vote
● Send voting reminders via email, phone, and text
● Schedule and provide free rides to and from the polls for every election
● Confirm who voted and who didn’t, and follow up to understand and eliminate barriers to voting
● Engage committed voters to make demands and hold elected officials accountable after the election

Rev. William McCullough, Founder of FaithActs, Senior Pastor of Russell Temple CME Church, and the President of the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance of Greater Bridgeport and Vicinity knows the power of bringing communities together to cast their vote. He says, “Our ancestors sacrificed their lives for the right to vote. But too often our people don’t have the information they need when it’s time to cast their ballot. That’s why FaithActs created a free, accessible Voter Guide. We want to arm voters with knowledge to make informed decisions at the polls.”

  1. Tom White, I know you have this editorial written by William F Buckley in the National Review on August 24, 1957 title, “Why the South Must Prevail.” National Review justified it’s position on the grounds that whites were “the more advanced race, ” and as such were “entitled to rule.” The piece put National Review on record in favor of both legal segregation where it existed (in accordance with “states’ rights” principle) and the right of southern whites to discriminate against southern blacks, on the basis of their “Negro backwardness. The editorial defended the right of whites to govern exclusively, even in jurisdictions where they did not constitute a majority of the population.
