We’re taking our IPRA hangout series on the road. We’re inviting New Mexico journalists in these areas to compare notes on Inspection of Public Records Act requests, offer tips, generate story ideas, talk to experts and help hold local government accountable.
The motivation? Let’s use records to build good stories. And let’s find out about the experience other journalists have when they are seeking records—maybe even the same records we’re trying to obtain.
It’s informal and free, and you don’t have to be an SPJ member to attend.
For background; New Mexico Foundation for Open Government’s FAQ on this state sunshine law.
