OpenOakland is a nonprofit civic innovation organization that brings together coders, designers, data geeks, journalists, and city staff to collaborate on solutions to improve the lives of Oaklanders. We are part of Code for America’s Brigade program and hold frequent events for community, local government and tech folks to work together.
Our focus is on both community technology and open government projects that we support through community partnerships and engaged volunteers.
Our projects range from events like CityCamp and the Open Government Pledge, to a community-based open-data portal and OaklandWiki, to apps that help you chart crime trends, submit FOIA requests, or adopt your local storm drain.
We are fiscally sponsored by Code for America, a a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
Check out our current projects. Then get involved by coming to our next Meetup, every Tuesday, 6:30–9 p.m. at City Hall. We look forward to meeting you.
