Join us for a Twitter chat on FOIA


Happy Sunshine Week! The FOIA-rich week may be winding down but there are plenty of events still lined up.

Tomorrow, Friday March 15 at 2:00 p.m. ET, our very own Bill Allison (Sunlight’s editorial director) will be on a Twitter FOIA chat — taking your questions on all things FOIA and sharing some tips on using the Freedom of Information Act. He will also provide some information on some new resources that might help you, and heartfelt sympathy for the problems you encounter when using the Act.


Follow along as Bill composes a FOIA request in real time and submits it to a federal agency. To participate, submit your question or comment and add the (hashtag) #FOIAchat.
