The CivicLab

Programs and Services: 

The CivicLab is a space for educators, activists and practitioners of grassroots democracy to meet, do research, teach and build tools for accelerating civic engagement and community improvement projects. One of its major projects in 2013 was the TIF Illumination Project, which engaged over 2000 people in 20+ wards to demand more transparency in the Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Program.
