Overview: The call for Racial Justice across the US came with a single demand for Police Reform. To implement real reform there needs to be an understanding at the community level on how budgetary decisions at the municipal or county level work. Typically cities and counties release this as budget data in a PDF form. Sometimes it’s easy to find, but most times it’s hard. In this project, we are exploring a digital service that informs and engages communities related to their budget.
