KNOW YOUR RIGHTS: How to Use Freedom of Information Laws to Hold Law Enforcement Accountable

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS: How to Use Freedom of Information Laws to Hold Law Enforcement Accountable

#BlackLivesMatter. This episode is a departure from our usual big cat content; but it is the only content I felt was appropriate to share in the days following the murder of George Floyd and the hate crime against Christian Cooper. As an animal lawyer, I have been using federal FOIA and state public records laws to obtain law enforcement and other government agency documents, records, video, and photographs for the past decade. It is my hope that by sharing that information here, you will feel empowered as an advocate for racial justice and the other social changes that you feel passionate about. For access to your state’s open records law, visit this page: https://www.nfoic.org/coalitions/state-foi-resources/state-freedom-of-information-laws.
