Federal Freedom of Information Act
The New England First Amendment Coalition and the Society of Professional Journalists New England are offering lessons on the federal Freedom of Information Act and state public record laws.

The short introductory classes will feature expert instructors and be moderated by Emily Sweeney, a reporter at The Boston Globe and a board member of both NEFAC and SPJNE.

Registration is now open for all classes.

"Public record laws are a valuable tool to help citizens learn about and engage with their government," Sweeney said. "But they vary greatly from state to state. This series of presentations will help everyone better understand the laws in New England and how they can best be used."
