OpenOakland – home

OpenOakland improves the lives of Oaklanders by advancing civic innovation and open government through engaged volunteers, community partnerships, and civic technology.

We make tools. They increase access to public information. Some help Oaklanders engage more effectively with local government and with each other. We collaborate with Oakland’s civic stakeholders. We help civic-minded volunteers make a difference in their city. Join us!

Find out what we’re about or start with projects we’re hacking. Get plugged in: our community meets weekly for civic hack nights each Tuesday from 6:30–9 p.m. in City Hall Room 3. Join us! Geeks, Suits, Wonks, and all Oaklanders are welcome!
