Open Gov for the Rest of Us

Via LISC Chicago

Goal

Providing residents in low-income neighborhoods in Chicago with the tools to access and demand better data around issues important to them, like housing and education

Open Gov for the Rest of Us is seeking to engage neighborhoods on Chicago’s South Side in the Open Government movement. The three-stage campaign will connect more residents to the Internet, promote the use of open government tools and develop neighborhood-driven requests for new data that address residents’ needs. Building on the success of LISC Chicago’s Smart Communities program and Data Friday series, the project aims to spread a culture of data and improved use of digital tools in low-income neighborhoods by directly involving their residents.
