The Sacramento Bee will host a seminar this month to help readers understand how they can obtain information kept by government agencies.
The event, titled “Your Right to Know,” will take place Sept. 23 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at The Sacramento Bee, 2100 Q St., Sacramento.
In the first hour, panelists will explain state and federal public information laws and share strategies for dealing with agencies that refuse to provide records. During the last half-hour, readers can meet with reporters, editors and open-records experts to ask questions about how they can obtain public information.
Media law experts Karl Olson and Terry Francke are among those expected to attend.
Never miss a local story.
The event is free, but readers must obtain a ticket at www.sacbee.com/vip.
