About Transparency Toolkit

Transparency Toolkit uses open data to watch the watchers and hold the powerful to account. We build free software to collect and analyze open data from a variety of sources. Then we work with investigative journalists and human rights organizations to turn that into useful, actionable knowledge. Currently, our primary focuses are investigating surveillance and human rights abuses.

Focus Areas


We use open data to map the intelligence community and uncover secret surveillance programs.

Human Rights

We help investigate human rights abuses and find perpetrators.
