In the D.C. area and want to learn how to peek inside federal agencies using FOIA? Join the Society of Professional Journalists’ D.C. Chapter and MuckRock from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 1 for a look at the latest strategies and new advice for more targeted requests, followed by a few rounds of “FOIA Karaoke.”
A few lucky winners might even walk away with some exclusive MuckRock swag.
We will discuss FOIA tactics and research tools - including some that have never been shared publicly - that can help you learn about the Trump administration or other topics you’re interested in. The talk will be helpful for both beginners and experienced FOIA requesters.
The event is hosted by the MEDILL News Service bureau of Northwestern University at 1325 G St NW #730, Washington, DC 20005 (Metro Center).
Light refreshments will be provided. The talk will start promptly at 6:30 p.m.
We look forward to seeing you there! Space is limited, so make sure to claim your spot by RSVPing today. Admission is free for students and members of SPJ’s DC chapter, and just $5 for everyone else.
