How To Get Your FBI File , FOIA ACT

Want to know the story behind the latest government scandal, or see what a three-letter agency knows about you? In this workshop, the Electronic Frontier Foundation will show you how to use two open government laws, the Freedom of Information Act and the Privacy Act, to ask for records from the federal government.

We'll discuss what you can (and can't) get under these laws, how to write an effective open government request, how to appeal an agency's decision to withhold information, and how to figure out next steps.
