Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

FOIA Clinic

The Public Citizen Litigation group, a division of Public Citizen, launched the Public Interest FOIA Clinic, an online resource that helps nonprofit organizations obtain federal government documents.

The Clinic provides “direct litigation assistance to public interest organizations, particularly those that have substantive expertise in their area but lack substantial FOIA litigation experience”. Check out their FOI Clearinghouse, request legal assistance on behalf of a non-profit organization or public interest group, or add your non-profit FOIA work to the Public Interest FOIA Database.
