Let the Sun Shine: FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) Requests for Journalists and Researchers
Wednesday, November 4
Gelman Library, Room 702
Director of the Freedom of Information Act Project Nate Jones of the non-government, non-profit National Security Archive will lead a workshop on how journalists, historians, or any person can file successful FOIA requests to the federal government. His two-hour workshop will share the tactics the Archive has learned from the 50,000-plus FOIA requests and appeals that it has submitted. Jones will utilize real examples of FOIA requests, appeals, and releases to demonstrate how to pry government documents into the public domain and allow Americans to know what their government is up to. This workshop is free and open to the public.
