Four Steps to FOIA Mastery (2)

Using public records laws can reveal everything from covert surveillance programs to hidden family history - but only if you know how to ask for it effectively. At this workshop, FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) masters from MuckRock and other leading transparency organizations will share their basic strategies for opening government at all levels. They'll go beyond magic keywords to include and teach participants how to get in the mind of government bureaucracy to file more precise, effective, and illuminating requests. In addition to strategies that will help new requesters and veterans alike improve their transparency strategies, the workshop will offer opportunities to receive advice and feedback on attendees' request ideas.
