Are you a reporter having trouble getting records from your local government, school board or the United Way? Are you a private citizen interested to know how you can keep track of the latest zoning issues or how you can get police reports for an arrest in your neighborhood? Now is your chance to get a basic education on government transparency and to ask a lawyer questions about whatever is on your mind. NCPA General Counsel Amanda Martin will lead a workshop and discussion of open government.

To combat decreasing government transparency, NC Press Foundation and NC Press Association will host training opportunities for hundreds of news professionals and citizens statewide to equip them with the information they need to seek out data-driven stories and successfully navigate public access to government records. In a time when the freedom of the press is under fire, this program will work to embolden journalists, inform citizens, and increase civic participation. The training costs are covered by a grant awarded to the NC Press Foundation by the Local News Lab Fund.
