Holding the government accountable is thirsty work. Which is why to close out Sunshine Week, MuckRock put together this list of transparency-inspired tipples to make those GLOMAR rejections go down smoother.
Last week, we put out a call to nominate FOIA heroes - ordinary citizens whose public records requests have made an impact. The results are in, and we’ll close out Sunshine Week with the strongest case for the public’s right to know - the public themselves.
FOIA can be slow and strange, but that might be all the more reason to introduce the youth, the future, to it now. For you educators, MuckRock’s made up some materials to assist you in starting a discussion about transparency in government.
