Hero of the Week, 2007-03-11

Filed under: Hero of the Week — crcb @ 5:54 am

Mood: Fastidiously ludic

Yes, I know I skipped a week or two. I overslept.

This week’s hero is an organization, the National Freedom of Information Coalition (NFOIC). In a government run by the governed, as ours is supposed to be, information is vital. The NFOIC , a loose affiliation of state organizations, helps citizens get the information we need to oversee our government responsibly. The NFOIC website provides an electronic newsletter, The FOI ADVOCATE; a listserv; a blog; links to federal and state resources; and white papers and reports.

Also worth a look is the Freedom of Information Center at the University of Missouri-Columbia’s School of Journalism, though it doesn’t seem to be actively maintained. The headlines in the “Current News Highlights” are from 2005.
