Since the "California Report Card" platform launched in early February, over 6,000 people from almost every county in the state have assigned over 20,000 grades to the State of California. This feedback is being closely watched by Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, who developed the platform with the CITRIS Data and Democracy Initiative at UC Berkeley. The project is exploring how technology can streamline and structure communication between constituents and elected officials.

Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom and CRC Leader Ken Goldberg will host a public forum at UC Berkeley on March 20, 2014 to open conversation about the data and lessons learned.
