Open The Government is a non-partisan coalition of diverse organizations that share the belief that our government should be open and transparent. When Americans can see how their government operates, they are able to hold our leaders accountable by ensuring they play the same set of rules. Transparency also increases trust by encouraging our government officials to abide by high ethical standards, refrain from making secret law, and creating better policy – all of which strengthens our democracy.

By working in coalition, we can amplify our power by sharing expertise, bring advocates together from across the political spectrum to work on issue areas of common concern, and coordinate advocacy and education efforts.

If your organization is interested in exploring whether joining our growing coalition is right for you, please send your inquiry to Hannah Bassett,
