NEFAC Accepting Nominations for 2017 Antonia Orfield Citizenship Award

The New England First Amendment Coalition is seeking applications for its 2017 Antonia Orfield Citizenship Award. The deadline is January 15, 2017.

The award is given to an individual from one of the six New England states who has fought for information crucial to the public’s understanding of its community or what its government is doing — or not doing — on its behalf. The candidate should have shown tenacity or bravery in the face of difficulty while obtaining information that the public has a right to know.
