CCV was driven by our frustration with the lack of transparency and accountability in local and state government decision-making and school boards. We recognized the need for an organization that could hold public officials accountable and amplify the voices of all community members. We were motivated by our passion for ensuring that the actions of those in power reflected the needs of their constituents.
Given the passion that drives our organization, we believe that charging a fee for our services would be contrary to our values. We have witnessed firsthand the impact that the decisions made by public officials can have on the lives of everyday people, and we are committed to ensuring that everyone has the same access to information and that everyone's voice is heard.
Our nonprofit focuses on monitoring state, local, and school board activities to ensure accountability, transparency, and fairness in decision-making. We keep a watchful eye on public officials and work to hold them accountable to the people they serve.
We use a variety of methods to monitor state, local, and school board activities, including technology, AI, attending meetings, reviewing public records, conducting research, and engaging with community members.
We focus on a wide range of issues that impact our communities, including education, housing, the environment, transportation, and more. We prioritize issues that have a direct impact on the lives of people in our communities.
We measure the impact of our work in a variety of ways, including changes in policies and decision-making, increased public engagement and awareness, and improvements in the lives of community members.
