Tools for Transparency: Google Groups


Just a quick note about this post and all upcoming posts by yours truly. Each week I’ll be bringing to you tech related tools and ideas that will help the community in the fight for government transparency. So stay tuned, there’s more to come!

Here at Sunlight, we’ve compiled a list of all the different Google Group communities that our partners or we ourselves have set up to push the transparency conversation along. Take a look at the list below and feel free to add in the comments any groups we might have missed. We’ll be adding this list to the Public Equals Online wiki and we would LOVE volunteers to help us keep this list up to date. Interested? Email me at
