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 problem:

The vast majority of these public meetings receive no media coverage and produce minimal public records.

Our solution:

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 will launch in Chicago and Detroit in January 2019.
