Take a stand for open government

At Sunlight, we believe you shouldn’t have to go to an office in Washington, D.C. or your state capitol to access information about your government or how your elected officials are representing you. Information about your government -- and those who are trying to influence it with lobbying, campaign contributions and more -- should be at your fingertips, online, disclosed in real time.

Events & Sponsorship

Would you like to create a more open and transparent government? We're organizing and sharing information of upcoming events, trainings and open government groups around the country. We need your help finding more!

If you know of an open government event or training, please share that information with us. If you want to start your own event, you can check out our Community Events page to find like-minded transparency advocates and make some offline connections. Whether it's a hackathon or happy hour, you can help build the movement for transparency right in your own town.

Download our Sunlight Events Sponsorship Toolkit for details on event sponsorship and data resources to use at your event. Email us directly if you need help with planning or promoting.
