LittleSis is bringing together a community of citizens who believe in transparency and accountability where it matters most. Our task is to study, document, and expose the social networks that have our democracy in a stranglehold, so that grassroots efforts can more effectively challenge their claim to power.

We're looking for researchers, programmers, artists and organizers to lend a hand. If you want to get involved, send us a note, join our email list, sign up to become a LittleSis analyst and start adding information to the site, or check out our help pages for information on how to use the site.
