Problem Space:

It is not easy for community members to educate themselves about what issues are being discussed within local government. It is also not easy to know how to get involved in the civic participation process.

Proposed Solution:

CFSJ is building a data pipeline that automatically scrapes public meeting information and agendas from local government websites and runs various machine learning, image recognition, and natural language processing analysis in order to surface interesting information to community members.
