Society of American Archivists – ACTION ALERT!

A brief reminder to please see the Action Alert on the SAA home page (http://www2.archivists.org/) about supporting the Freedom of Information Improvement Act.

Please contact your Senator’s office – by Monday, December 1, 2014 –  to 1) support the bill and 2) ensure that it comes to a vote during this session of Congress.

One of SAA’s key advocacy objectives is to make transparent and hold accountable government organizations at all levels.  Improving the FOIA law as proposed would significantly advance that agenda.  SAA’s Committee on Advocacy and Public Policy has prepared an excellent issue brief on FOIA that you’ll find here:  http://www2.archivists.org/statements/issue-brief-freedom-of-information-act.
