What we're about

Citizen Labs is a Grand Rapids based non-profit organization that believes engaged citizens can improve their communities. We work together with our community to use open data and open source technology to promote transparency, better understand problems, make better choices, and provide solutions that work. The activities of Citizen Labs, such as "hack nights" are open events where individuals and groups of individuals can work, share, and learn in an inclusive environment where everyone is treated respectfully.
