Join the effort

The History Commons project is an intelligence tool for civil society, allowing people at the grassroots-level to monitor and investigate the activities of governments and corporations.

Once you've done that you can immediately start collecting and adding information to the History Commons database. The History Commons project has the potential to become civil society's most important tool in keeping government officials and corporations in check. But we can't do this without your involvement and support.
