OTG is the only nonpartisan coalition dedicated to advancing openness for accountability. The coalition, comprised of more than 100 partner organizations, seeks to strengthen democracy and empower the public by advancing policies that create a more open and accountable government. Founded in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, OTG has a long history of advocating for a more transparent federal government. OTG staff work to identify shared policy priorities among coalition partners, champion policy reform, raise the profile of accountability issues, and create new tools and resources to support coalition partners.
In the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election, the coalition created a blueprint for the next president to restore accountability to the federal government. These recommendations represent the top priorities of OTG and many of our coalition partners. Alongside these recommendations, OTG has been building a racial equity and accountability agenda. While OTG is a large coalition, the staff is small. This puts a premium on hiring collaborative, entrepreneurial, and motivated individuals with a demonstrated interest in policy and advocacy to advance accountability policies.
The Policy Director will develop and oversee the implementation of OTG’s policy agenda and will communicate the organization’s policy work to policymakers, media, funders, partners, and the public. The Policy Director will also advise and oversee the work of other policy staff, as appropriate. Learn More
The Policy Analyst will coordinate coalition partners’ advocacy on various anti-corruption issues and on issues that advance the organization’s racial equity and accountability agenda, assisting the Executive Director on an agenda to support historically underserved communities’ efforts to hold the government to account.
