Local Legal Initiative Brings Pro Bono FOI Attorney to CO

We’re excited to announce that Colorado is one of only 5 states out of 50 applicants to receive a pro bono FOI attorney for at least two years. The Local Legal Initiative provides local news organizations with the direct legal services they need to pursue enterprise and investigative stories in their communities. Reporters Committee attorneys will be based in key regions across the country to help local news organizations and journalists throughout the area defend their rights to gather and report the news, gain access to public records and court proceedings, and hold state and local government agencies and officials accountable to the public.
