Want to learn how local journalists dug deep to root out police misconduct, craft a public records request and dig through data to see what your aldermen are up to? How do you find records on deadline, and what’s the status of just how public information is in Illinois?
You’re in luck. We’re hosting our fourth annual FOIA Fest on March 12 at Loyola University Chicago. This daylong conference, featuring more than two dozen journalists and other FOIA experts, kicks off national Sunshine Week, a time to celebrate the importance of access to public information.
FOIAFest is made possible by the generous support of the Chicago Headline Club, Loyola University Chicago and the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.
We look forward to seeing you there!
