BetaNYC is a 21st century civic organization that envisions a New York City powered by the people, for the people, for the 21st century.
We are a not-for-profit organization that uses advocacy, data, and curriculum to improve municipal governance and empower individuals to make an impact.
* We demystify government policies and practices, and work to improve policy.
* We empower individuals and organizations with usable government information and data.
* We explore the future by building government technology prototypes for elected officials, their staff, community councils, the general government worker, and the average individual.
BetaNYC advocates for a participatory permaculture where open data, community empowerment, participatory government, and education coexist in advance of each other.
