Earning Your Support

FAC works to make government more accountable to you by defending your right to criticize government and by making government more open, more transparent and, as a result, more responsive to the people. Here are some of the ways we do it.

  • Strategic Litigation
    FAC brings state and federal lawsuits in its own name. These cases are selected with a view to maximizing chances of success and obtaining outcomes that will have far-reaching impact. FAC also participates in “friend of the court” briefs in significant cases.
  • Legal Hotline
    FAC’s Legal Hotline is free and open to all. Anyone with a question about access to government records, participating in public meetings or rights under the First Amendment can get their questions answered by lawyers who are experts in the field. Journalists on deadline get a rapid response.
  • Legislative Oversight
    FAC tracks the legislation in California and advocates for government transparency and First Amendment protections.
