What is Informed Citizen?

Informed Citizen is an app for BlackBerry PlayBook and BlackBerry smartphones running OS 6 or higher that aims to put government at your fingertips. Among its handy references are readable copies of the U.S. and Washington State Constitutions, a directory of state and local officials, and bill tracking information from the Olympia Newsriver.

Who’s behind it?

Informed Citizen is sponsored and developed by the Northwest Progressive Institute, a netroots powered strategy center working to raise America’s quality of life through innovative research and imaginative advocacy.
