Data Summary

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.

I understand that LittleSis's mission is to track people and groups with inordinate wealth, influence on public policy, and access to government officials. As a LittleSis analyst it is my responsibility to ensure that information I contribute is relevant to the site's mission, accurate, and documented by publicly available original sources on the internet. The LittleSis staff can revoke my editing privileges or disable my account if they believe I am not following these guidelines in good faith.
