IRE Commons: Let's file one ambitious FOIA together

  • Event: 2017 IRE Conference
  • Speaker: Chris Glorioso of WNBC New York City
  • Date/Time: Thursday, Jun. 22 at 2:30pm
  • Location: IRE Commons
  • Audio file: No audio file available.

Let’s come together to conceive of one ambitious FOIA idea and pledge to spend the next year working together to pry the information free. In the first half of the session we’ll do rapid-fire FOIA pitches. Tell the group why your idea is worth an epic collective battle to free the files. We'll vote on which FOIA to pursue and assign sub-groups to fight for the information. For example, some of us can write drafts of the FOIA. Others can line up legal help to fight FOIA denials in court. Others can make follow-up calls, etc.

The goal: By the 2018 IRE Conference we will have a trove of information to help us execute stories tailored to our own shops/markets.
