OpenOakland works to improve the lives of Oaklanders by advancing civic innovation and open government through community partnerships, engaged volunteers, and civic technology.
We create digital tools to increase access to public information, to help Oaklanders engage more effectively with local government and with each other. We collaborate and partner with Oakland’s civic stakeholders and provide opportunities for civic minded volunteers to make a difference in their city. If you’re reading this, we’d love you to join us!
We use technology for social good. To find out what we’re about read more, then check out the current projects we’re hacking on— then 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!
To see what we do using open source technology, check out Oakland Answers, the result of a partnership with the City and Oakland residents – the super simple way to find answers about the City! Try it.
