Jan 25th 2018

Our 48th #PublicNewsroom will be a Watchdog Training led by the Better Government Association, an organization promoting integrity and transparency in Illinois government. BGA’s Watchdog Training teaches people the tools of journalism so they can hold public officials accountable.

Join us on January 25th for a presentation led by BGA Attorney Matt Topic and Civic Engagement Analyst Annum Haider, who will go over the Open Meetings Act, as well as how and when to make a FOIA request, and how to appeal when a FOIA request is denied. Learn to use these tools to ensure government agencies are open and transparent!

This event is free and open to the public. Please make sure to register before the workshop at https://bettergov.salsalabs.org/citybureau/index.html

This event is part of City Bureau’s #PublicNewsroom programming, a series of free, weekly workshops and discussions aimed at building trust between journalists and the communities they serve while shaping a more inclusive newsroom.
