FaithActs for Education is a grassroots community organizing nonprofit based in Bridgeport, Connecticut. We are people of faith building power to get our children the education they deserve. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to graduate from college, take care of their family, and fulfill their God-given potential.

Founded in October 2014, FaithActs is more than 400 members and 50 churches strong. 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 prevented cuts to education at the state and local level. Learn more about our team here.
