Data democratization is at the heart of mySidewalk. We believe every organization has a right to accurate, timely, and relevant data about the places they live and the people they serve. Our suite of products breaks down the barriers to harnessing and leveraging this data, allowing users of all backgrounds to amplify their stories.
Since 2015, mySidewalk has worked with public, non-profit, and private organizations to enable and drive forward change with community data.
In partnership with the National League of Cities (NLC), mySidewalk is proud to offer a tool designed to place data at the heart of city decision-making and conversation. Seek Cities enables city leadership, program managers, analysts, and planners access to a single, unified and trusted data library to guide actions such as grant investments and community impact assessments with accurate, measurable indicators.

Educating Leaders: Unlock the Power of Community Data in Your City
To showcase the power of using data to drive city innovation, we’re hosting six inspiring conversations with local government leaders who are telling the stories of their communities. The webinar series will address community challenges, such as equitable federal funding, affordable housing, the economy, climate risk and resiliency. In each discussion, city innovators will identify a challenge and share how community data and Seek Cities have helped them address it.
City leaders and staff will come away with actionable strategies, guidance, and hands-on tools to accompany each story.
