I need to create a website FAST for rapidly changing information

I need to slap together a website FAST that contains a map and a (sortable? filterable?) list of Wisconsin-related protest/rally events. I'd really, really like it if people could enter their own events and they'd show up on the map without a lot of intervention on my part.

Here's where I'm at right now: I have a Google spreadsheet that I'm letting people request editing rights to. Several times per day I cut and paste the spreadsheet data into a batchgeo
map. I have shortened is.gd URLs for both spreadsheet and map, and I'm probably annoying the fuck out of my twitter followers because I'm posting them frequently.
The map and list need to be in one place, and the process needs to be more automated. Events are being created and changing every hour. People are PISSED OFF in Wisconsin, if you hadn't noticed. I can't keep up with it and still pay attention to my real job.
