Hello everybody,

After several years of working in the Hungarian transparency community, I
have recently moved to Washington, DC to join
<http://sunlightfoundation.com/> Sunlight Foundation and coordinate their
new international program. I am truly honored by the opportunity and
thrilled to let you know that this fascinating organization has decided to
deepen their involvement in the global transparency movement. 

As part of its international program, Sunlight plans to push broad
initiatives that are helping to define how open government works globally,
developing the capacity of its NGO allies throughout the world, catalyzing
future work by building research and evidence that support their priorities,
and serving as a hub in the network of international transparency
practitioners. Our major focus areas for the next coming years are
legislative transparency where Sunlight has already taken a leading role in
creating and coordinating a  <http://www.openingparliament.org/> forum for
national Parliamentary Monitoring Organizations (PMOs), influence/money in
politics and the transparency of political finance, and open data in
general, where Sunlight plans to join with other groups to pursue meaningful
transparency and accountability from open data. 

At this stage, I would really appreciate if you shared your stories,
projects and challenges directly with me or just reach out to me if you
think that Sunlight`s international program may be of any relevance to you.

I'm really looking forward to working with all of you!
