happy holidays 2018
As we’ve written about before, working at the Central Intelligence Agency can be hazardous, even if you never left Langley. With classified office accidents fairly commonplace, it’s not surprising that the CIA made holiday safety a priority, as evidenced by memos dating back to the Agency’s founding.
Over the years, FOIA officers and records custodians have helped MuckRock release over three million government documents. With 2018 coming to a close, we cannot forget about those who helped make government transparency a reality this year.
If you find yourself reflecting, this holiday season, upon the trials of those less fortunate than yourself, please consider taking a simple step toward bringing those circumstances to the fore by submitting a suggestion to one of MuckRock’s crowdsourced investigations.
MuckRock’s crowdfunds are a great way to give the gift of government accountability this holiday season and all year round.
Yesterday on Twitter, I asked the #FOIA community if anybody would be interested in “Secret Santa, but for random declassified reports?” The response was a pretty resounding chorus of affirmatives, so we’re doing this.
