• We need a True FOIA
We are united in urging the following recommendations critical to a true Freedom of Information Act.
Give Power To The People

A Whistleblower’s Act to protect Government workers who ‘do the right thing’ by sharing information about dishonest behaviour in Government.

Tell your MP that you want a strong and fair Freedom of Information Act.
