Original Program: November 16, 2018
The Public Records Act allows citizens and groups a right to access government information, but this ideal can often conflict with reality.
The phrase “Where you stand is where you sit” captures the idea that the world looks different depending on where you’re viewing it from, and one’s vantage point can lead to the polarization of “us” versus “them.”
This program about the Public Records Act starts out with a statutory and case law update and moves into a day full of learning and discussion of viewpoints.
