The First Amendment Foundation believes that government openness and transparency are critical to citizen trust and involvement in our democratic society – without Government in the Sunshine, civic engagement cannot bloom. Through ongoing monitoring of the state’s public records and open meeting laws and the education of government officials and the citizens they serve, the Foundation promotes the public’s constitutional right to oversee and to participate in the governance process.

With the support of members and donors like you, the First Amendment Foundation is able to:

  • Operate a helpline available to anyone with a question about Florida’s open government laws. Give us a call: (850)-222-3518 or email:
  • Track legislation in Tallahassee and fight efforts to make government less transparent.
  • Enlist a team of attorneys offering largely pro bono services to aggressively go after government agencies that block or stall legitimate access to information.
  • Conduct Sunshine Seminars across the state, training hundreds of public officials, journalists, attorneys, and concerned citizens each year on Florida’s public records and open meetings laws.
  • Publish the Government-in-the-Sunshine Manual and Pocket Guide each year so everyone can have the most up-to-date Sunshine Law changes at their fingertips.
  • Operate an online training program, the Sunshine Certificate Training Program will be available soon – because open government is everyone’s business.

Our job has never been more challenging and, with your help, we will continue to fight efforts to erode Florida’s long-standing tradition of open government.
