Free Open Government Seminar at Belleville High School on March 15

 

The New Jersey Foundation for Open Government is hosting a free educational seminar from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, March 15 in the cafeteria of the Belleville High School, 100 Passaic Ave., during National Sunshine Week – March 13-19.

The dialogue will be all about open government and your right to know. Panelists will discuss New Jersey’s Open Public Records Act (OPRA) and Open Public Meetings Act (OPMA) and how you can exercise your rights under these laws to be better informed about the operations of state and local government. Handouts will be provided.

The seminar is free, but attendees are asked to register at NJFOG’s website at NJFOG.org.

 

 

Update: The Belleville Times has published an editorial regarding Sunshine Week, and promoting NJFOG’s event at BHS:
