Description:

We brought this workshop back so we could host it at WNYLRC! 

Michael Kuzma and Leslie James Pickering will lead a workshop on how attorneys, journalists, historians, or any person can file successful Freedom of Information (FOI) requests. This workshop will share tactics they have learned from the various FOI requests and appeals that they have submitted.  Real examples of FOI requests, appeals, and releases will be used to demonstrate how to pry loose records from oft-times recalcitrant federal, state and local agencies.  Anyone interested in open government issues won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind presentation.

Great for librarians who are interested in learning more about obtaining available documents from the government and how this procedure works.

Please bring a laptop with you. The room will have WiFi.

Speaker Bio:

Michael Kuzma is a solo practitioner in Buffalo.  He has long viewed the law as being a tool to bring about social, political and economic change.  For nearly four decades, Mike has fought to make government more open and accountable through use of the federal and state Freedom of Information (FOI) laws.  He has litigated a number of FOI cases against agencies such as the CIA, FBI and New York State Department of Correctional and Community Supervision (DOCCS).  Mike has represented Native American activist and political prisoner, Leonard Peltier, Jalil Muntaqim, Occupy Buffalo and Leslie James Pickering.

Leslie James Pickering is a proprietor of Burning Books, a radical bookstore in Buffalo's West Side, and a long-time free speech and social justice advocate. Ongoing Freedom of Information Act litigation has exposed extensive targeting of Pickering by the FBI, including a two year eco-terrorism conspiracy investigation into Burning Books.
