Other Issues

The Bridgeport Child Advocacy Coalition hosts a variety of community events and forums, including its annual Childrens Issues Dialogue, which brings together local and state-level policy makers, educators, law enforcement, health care providers, clergy, other community leaders with parents and students to discuss issues that impact children and families through a grassroots lens.

The BCAC network also advocates for legislation and policies that support children and families. We track health care, education, safety, and human services legislation, influencing lawmakers, submitting formal testimony, and conducting community and media outreach.
