The New England First Amendment Coalition is continuing its series on state open meeting laws with a new class on executive sessions.
This class features NEFAC's Tim White, an investigative journalist for WPRI in Providence. White will share a story about a government agency holding an executive session, a secret meeting allowed only under certain circumstances. White will discuss how he and his colleagues responded to this meeting and continued their reporting.
This class is 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.
