Civic Innovation Lab facilitated a series of hands-on community engagement events aimed at learning the hopes and needs of a diverse group of citizens motivated by their ideas to make the city better. Leveraging the City's open data and the globally tested Learn Do Share / Freedomlab methodology, Civic Innovation Lab broke new ground on the open data movement in Los Angeles.
