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.

Matsui Legacy Project

An interesting new project that includes government information is the Honorable Robert T. Matsui Legacy Project: Road to Redress and Reparations. Developed at California State University, Sacramento, the digital archive focuses on the late Congressman Robert T. Matsui’s leadership in gaining redress and reparations for Japanese Americans interned during World War II. It contains digital reproductions of select photographs, documents, video and audio clips from public sources and the Matsui family. The focal point of the website is on Robert T. Matsui and his leadership in Congress working to secure redress and reparations for Japanese Americans following the incarceration and exclusion of Japanese Americans from the West Coast of the United States during World War II.
