9/27, 7pm – FOIA Party at the Lab!

Posted by Matt Cropp

Ever wondered exactly what those black helicopters are up to? Thanks to a federal law called the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), you can find out!

At the FOIA party, we'll get together, brainstorm ideas, teach the basics, and discuss techniques for getting the information you're after. Bring your most burning government questions (local, state, or federal), and we'll make sure everyone leaves with at least one request under their belt.

The "Intro to FOIA" presentation by Brian Waters will start at 7:15 and run approximately 30 minutes, including Q&A.

Following the presentation, there will be a workshop session in which attendees will file their first FOIA requests, so, if you are interested in doing so, bring along a laptop!
