This meetup group is now closed. Please check out Code for Boston for open government hacking and advocacy in the Boston area.
We're a group of Boston-area activists trying to make government more open and accessible. We partner frequently with the Sunlight Foundation, other meetups like Hacks/Hackers and the Boston Python user group, and local activists and office-holders to help make government more accountable at the national, state, and local level.
- monthly project nights, where folks can work on their own projects or our current group project, Open Cities
- coffee shop meetups for folks to discuss open government over a drink or two
- the occasional event like next month's "Submit Your Own FOIA-request" with Muckrock.com
Interested? Join us, and feel free to post a question or suggest a meetup! We also have a mailing list you can join.
