Helping to make Kansas government open and transparent


The goal of the Kansas Coalition for Open Government is to promote awareness of open and transparent government in Kansas. Our Board of Directors and members help keep the public informed about abuses of open government. We strive to hold elected officials accountable for actions that ignore the public’s rights to attend public meetings and access government records.

KCOG is a nonprofit organization operated for charitable purposes and is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donate here.
