Noisebridgers and the EFF have worked together on a number of projects, and want to do more. To this end, Marcia Hofmann has offered to host a workshop on FOIA requests. For those unfamiliar, FOIA or Freedom of Information Act, is a method by which US citizens can request previously unreleased information and documents controlled by the United States government. In other words, you can send a request to the agency of your choice, and find out what they know about you.


On April 1 at 8pm at Noisebridge, she's going to give an overview on what FOIA is, how it works, and have some Q&A. And then anyone who's interested in can do some of the paperwork to file their own requests, under the guidance of the EFF.
