To celebrate Sunshine Week, MuckRock is hosting our very own transparency-themed science fair on Saturday, March 16th at Oficio Back Bay! Come and explore the ways an open government is essential to an informed and engaged democracy.
Massachusetts State Police and local law enforcement have spent millions amassing an arsenal of Tasers, but there’s minimal accountability for those doing the purchasing, or for those doing the tasing.
Next Monday, we’ll be co-hosting a free public records workshop with Emerson College and the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism at the Democracy Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Join us for the free event, whether you’re interested in learning government transparency basics or hoping to find new tactics for freeing documents.
