The Documenters Network has partnered with Buffalo’s Fire and the Indigenous Media Freedom Alliance to launch a program in North Dakota. The program aims to enhance local government transparency. They are paying community members to attend the program and summarize local government meetings, thus, boosting public oversight and participation. The participants of the program can earn $17 to $24 per hour after the training completes. The program is initially focused on Bismarck and Mandan, however, there are plans to expand the program to state-level meetings. They are aiming to become inclusive and serve as a model for other rural and Indigenous communities.

Program aims to empower people by allowing them to participate in local government meetings. Offering incentive sis just a way to encourage people to become more proactive.
