Free workshop on public record laws at Maplewood Library

St. Paul-based non-profit Public Record Media will host a Freedom of Information workshop at the Maplewood Library from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, July 16.

The workshop will explore how members of the public can use FOI laws (both Minnesota and federal) to obtain government records of interest to them.  The presentation will feature comments by Rich Neumeister, a longtime record requester and open government advocate. Members of the PRM board will give an introduction.

Participants are encouraged to bring ideas for their own public record requests. The event is open to the public and, RSVPs are encouraged by calling 651-556-1381. The Maplewood Library is located at 3025 Southlawn Drive.

PRM's workshop is one in a series of events that the organization is hosting throughout the state  under a grant from the Washington DC-based Sunlight Foundation.

Public Record Media is a Minnesota-based non-profit organization that conducts public record-centered publication, legal work and education.
