Mission

The Pennsylvania FOI Coalition is a nonprofit alliance formed to ensure that all Pennsylvanians have full and open access to their federal, state and local governments, their records and their proceedings.
The coalition stresses that such access results in the most responsive and effective government, and, in turn, stimulates civic involvement and trust in government.
The organization aims to preserve and improve access to all aspects of government, to achieve a presumption of access, to fund and implement grassroots and educational access efforts, to educate legislators in the need for access, and to participate fully in efforts to improve legislation to ensure the fullest possible access to government.
It will assist all Pennsylvanians - including individual citizens, students, educators, the media, professionals, and others in business in the private and public sectors - in fully realizing their rights and carrying out their responsibilities as citizens in our democracy.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

EDUCATION: Through seminars and publications, we educate citizens, groups and government officials about the importance of open government to democracy and how they can use their rights to get public records.

LAW REFORM: We monitor proposed state and federal laws, regulations and court decisions. We provide information to state officials and encourage discussion of open government improvements in Pennsylvania. To the extent allowed by our nonprofit status, we support reforms affecting public records.

OPEN GOVERNMENT SUPPORT: We provide resource material to citizens or groups who encounter difficulty in obtaining public records. In open government cases of state-wide importance, we help citizens obtain vigorous legal representation.
