Community Thrives — First Amendment Foundation

First Amendment Foundation is working to expand its internship program with the help of Gannett’s “A Community Thrives” grant program. If any FPA members would like to help the FAF organization toward its goal, here is a link, which will be good through Aug. 13. Though the initial $3,000 goal has been met (thank you to all our supporters), even more engagement could lead to meaningful grant awards.

This week, the organizations receiving the most unique donors can earn extra money — up to $4,000. Even small donations from lots of different givers would be a big help.

As you know, FAF has been helping journalists and citizens gain access to public records and public meetings for decades. In Florida, known for its relative openness, there are nearly 1,200 exemptions to Government-in-the-Sunshine laws, with legislation to add more in the works.

Thank you for anything you can do to promote our purpose.
