The evening is open to anyone interested in transparency, good government and open government in Oakland. You are not required to RSVP but we'd love to know if you will attend to help us plan this collaborative event.
We have a fantastic lineup of speakers who will present on various aspects of open government and transparency nationally and locally including:
OpenOakland, a Code for America Brigade, is a civic innovation organization that brings together coders, designers, data geeks, journalists, and city staff to collaborate on solutions to improve how our local government serves all citizens of Oakland. We draw on our wide range of expertise and perspectives to build open-source applications and working relationships that promote civic innovation and open government in Oakland.
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.
Come join us and help make open government a reality in Oakland!
