NFOIC is a nonpartisan alliance of nonprofit, citizen-driven state FOI and First Amendment organizations, academic and First Amendment centers, journalistic societies and attorneys working together to protect your right to open government and create greater government transparency.
NFOIC grants help foster the creation and growth of state FOI coalitions and assist with projects furthering public access to government records and meetings.
Our goal is nothing short of ensuring everyone’s right to information, and helping public institutions meet their legal obligations in the most efficient manner possible. To do this, we:
National or regional FOI organizations, FOI committees of both state or national journalistic societies, and nonprofit state, regional or national organizations with an expressed concern for open and transparent government and freedom of information are invited to become associated with the coalition in an advisory and coordinating capacity.
Attorneys specializing in First Amendment issues and individual citizens with a concern about First Amendment issues are also invited to become associate members.
Then, join us in our fight for government transparency.
