About his meeting with Make the Road members, Mayor Ganim said, “I was touched by their testimonies and we stand with you. We stand with Make the Road and all people who want to call our City home. We want to provide you the support that we can to the extent of the law.”
The Bridgeport Police Department is expected to take immediate steps to train and make all it’s members aware of the provisions of the Trust Act and to continue ongoing diversity and cultural awareness.
