Citizens Informed

Name of group: Citizens Informed

Statewide or local? Statewide

Area of focus (mission/goal): Citizens Informed is a volunteer-run, grassroots campaign formed to educate North Carolina citizens on the need for an online portal to host our state budget and spending database. We believe citizens should be able to track how their hard earned tax-dollars are being spent and budgeted.

Programs and activities: We are building a nonpartisan/bipartisan coalition supporting our mission and encourage coalition members to submit letters to the editor, opinion-editorials, etc. to local media outlets to educate all citizens on the need and benefits of such a website.
