It’s Never the Wrong Time to File a FOIA

We hope you joined us in our campaign to honor the 47th birthday of the FOIA and your right to know by filing a FOIA on the 4th. As regular visitors to our site and followers on Twitter may know, our Program Associate Abby filed a request with the DC government for copies of any plans to make sure the Anacostia running trail is safe to use and our Assistant Director Amy asked the Smithsonian for copies of any plans it has to notify people living near the National Zoo about escaped animals. If you did join the campaign, we hope you also returned to our site to pick up your “I FOIA’d” badge.

Even if you missed the 4th of July deadline, though, there is never a wrong time to file a FOIA. We listed lots of ideas on our campaign page including health and safety inspections for your favorite restaurants, the license status and history of the child or senior care facilities, and much more. We also have links to resources to make it easier for you to file your request. Happy FOIA'ing!
