The Georgia First Amendment Foundation is very disappointed in the University of Georgia’s decision to stop providing direct advocacy and representation to Georgia journalists and citizens asserting their rights under the state Open Records Act and Open Meetings Act. The UGA First Amendment Clinic has provided an invaluable service in this area of need. The current Georgia Attorney General has reduced resources available to those seeking access to public records and meetings held by government agencies. That has made the work of the UGA First Amendment Clinic especially important, and its withdrawal from direct advocacy and representation in this area erodes the ability of citizens and journalists statewide to exercise their right to know. The Georgia First Amendment Foundation is concerned about the lack of enforcement of Georgia’s Sunshine Laws statewide, and in keeping with our mission, we are committed to seeking solutions.
