The New England First Amendment Coalition is continuing its series on state open meeting laws with new classes on executive sessions.
The classes will feature a local journalist who will share stories of government agencies inappropriately holding executive sessions, secret meetings that are allowed only under certain circumstances. The journalists will discuss how they responded to these meetings and continued their reporting.
This latest round of classes will be provided by NEFAC with support from the Society of Professional Journalists Foundation, SPJ New England, the Rhode Island Foundation, MuckRock and the New England Society of News Editors.
Previous lessons can be viewed on NEFAC’s YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/c/fivefreedoms Or through its new multimedia FOI Guide: https://www.nefac.org/foiguide/
Registration is free and open to all members of the public.
