About the First Amendment Foundation

The First Amendment Foundation believes that government openness and transparency is critical to citizen trust and involvement in our democratic society – without Government in the Sunshine, civic engagement cannot bloom. Through ongoing monitoring of the state’s public records, open meetings laws, the education of government officials and citizens – the Foundation promotes the public’s constitutional right to oversee and to participate in the governance process.
