Join Us: Know Your Rights – California Public Meetings

Hosted by the League of Women Voters of California, the First Amendment Coalition’s open-government experts will provide an in-depth presentation on your rights to access public meetings in California. The presentation will be 45 minutes, reserving 15 minutes at the end for questions.

When: Tuesday, January 31, 2023, 12:00 PM PT

The presentation will focus on the Ralph M. Brown Act’s open-meeting requirements for local legislative bodies, including recent law changes that affect teleconferencing and decorum rules.

The session will cover:

  • your right to give public comment and what restrictions government bodies can place on the public;
  • what government business can be done behind closed doors;
  • common complaints from members of the public about accessing and participating in meetings;
  • and where First Amendment speech protections intersect with the government’s ability to manage proceedings.

All are welcome, but you must register to attend. Register here >>
