WE HAVE SOME EXCITING NEWS...

After five years of opening California’s governments to the public, developing data-driven policy analysis, and educating citizens about how California governments work, the California Common Sense team is proud to announce our nationwide expansion to United States Common Sense.

Our mission remains the same, but we are excited to now provide data, open government resources, and analysis relevant to all 50 states and their local governments.

In addition to our CACS work, you can find our newly-enhanced nationwide research and data products at UScommonsense.org.

With your support, we’ll continue striving to make governments across the country more open, more accessible, and more accountable to you.

Sincerely,

The US Common Sense Team
