The Digital Captures for Bridgeport Activist Organizations Collection is a pilot project for collecting digital materials and features interviews and digital media captured from the internet or digital files donated by three distinct activist organizations in Bridgeport:  Justice for Jayson, an organization formed in response to a police shooting; Bridgeport Generation Now, a nonpartisan, grassroots social action network focused on civic action; and P.T. Partners, a group of residents of residents of the P.T. Barnum low income housing complex that organizes for self-determination and against racism and oppression.

 This project was made possible through funding from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission and administered by the Connecticut State Library on behalf of the Connecticut State Historical Records Advisory Board and Conservation ConneCTion.
