Government bodies in Chicago hold hundreds of meetings each month that are supposed to be open to the public under the Open Meetings Act.
The vast majority of these public meetings receive no media coverage and produce minimal public records.
We train and pay people to attend these meetings and publish the results in collaboration with local journalists.
Together we're building a new public record at Documenters.org:
Documenters.org will launch in Chicago and Detroit in January 2019.
