Don't hate, participate.

We're against corruption, but we're not really about pointing fingers and exposing corrupt officials. We're here because we want to solve something and help fix a system of governance that was built before the internet was invented! We are data-driven, people-centered, and have absolutely zero tolerance for corruption and inefficiency.
