ACPC began in 2021 due to increasing frustration with the opacity of local government, ineffectiveness of corporate media at handling sociopolitical issues at a local level, and failure of both in making government and politics accessible to citizens. These issues came to head with the introduction of city council legislation creating the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center, more commonly known as Cop City. 

As the response to the Cop City Project grew, the need for our work to expand elevated with it. We now cover municipal government legislative sessions, carry an extensive library of documents obtained through Georgia Open Records Act requests, and report on current events around the fight against Cop City, all of which we make accessible to the public, often through social media.
