Washington Coalition for Open Government public workshop
The Washington Coalition for Open Government (WCOG) invites the public to attend a free workshop from 1:00 to 4:00PM on Saturday, October 26 at the Seattle Public Library - University Branch, 5009 Roosevelt Way NE.
Experts on open government issues will lead the attendees through a process that will enable them to effectively exercise their rights under Washington’s open government laws. The purpose of the workshop is to help people understand their right to know what their state and local governments are doing. Attorney Michele Earl-Hubbard, principal of Allied Law Group and 2014 Lawyer of the Year, and D. Edson Clark, 2012 James Andersen Award recipient and WCOG board member, will explain Washington’s open public meetings and public records laws. The workshop will feature general guidance rather than specific legal advice. Reference materials will be supplied.
Washington Coalition for Open Government is an independent non-partisan non-profit organization founded in 2002 by a group of individuals representing organizations with a broad spectrum of opinions and backgrounds, all dedicated to the principles of strengthening the state’s open government laws and protecting the public’s access to government at all levels.
Funding for this workshop is provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation through a grant from the National Freedom of Information Coalition.
