Right to Know: A Historical Guide to the Freedom of Information Act

Written by Sam Jacobs Subject: FOIA-Freedom of Information Act

On this episode of the Resistance Library Podcast, Sam and David discuss the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA.) Information has taken on a whole new meaning in the digital age, a time when sensitive data is either too easily accessible or not accessible enough.

This guide takes an in-depth look at FOIA history and the importance of exercising your right to know.
