Called Digital Democracy, the nonprofit project and its website promise to do wonders to promote citizen access to government and the legislative process.
A first-of-its-kind platform, Digital Democracy creates a searchable archive of all statements made in state legislative hearings. Now anyone can search, watch, and share statements made by state lawmakers, lobbyists and advocates as they debate, craft, and vote on policy proposals.
Makes it quick and easy for individuals to discover statements and votes on the issues that matter most to them. Free accounts allow users to create email alerts, and clip and share videos to inform their social networks.
Provides primary source information to identify and verify sources, quotes, and create multimedia assets in a timely manner. This unique resource bolsters the work of fact-checkers, investigative and community reporters.
Empowers statewide advocacy organizations to mobilize grassroots networks with actionable information. Tracking and engagement tools increase the precision with which advocates can meaningfully engage decision-makers.
An ever-growing big data resource, our unique data sets offer new opportunities to identify trends and correlations, create and test new hypotheses.
