Ferreting out important public data, in partnership with The Seattle Times, PEN "captures and translates into plain language...information that would otherwise slip through the cracks."

Public Eye Northwest

Public Eye Northwest (PEN) is a Seattle-based non-profit that helps people and communities plug in to government information online so they can be informed, constructive participants in our democracy. As a news partner with The Seattle Times, our Public Data Ferret project captures and translates into plain language for readers a wide variety of important new government reports and information that would otherwise slip through the cracks. To accent government transparency and civic capacity building we also do teaching, journalism internships, outside publishing, social media, and informal consulting. Our work covers Seattle and other local and regional governments in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. We also selectively cover the Washington state and U.S. governments.” Source: Public Eye Northwest
