This group is for champions, advocates, innovators, and practitioners of open data and open government in the Saint Louis region.

There are roles for developers, technologists, bureaucrats, policy wonks, and anyone else who wants to contribute to the policy implementation, software development, advocacy, and just plain hard work of creating an open data platform for local government in this area.

This group has grown out of the June 2013 Random Hacks of Kindness STL, which was part of the 2013 National Day of Civic Hacking Event. Civic hacks and open data planning are regular activities of this group.

We are also the St. Louis Code for America brigade!

All events of this group, including meetups, are conducting under the Code for America Code of Conduct and Anti-Harassment policy as detailed on our website at
