CalAware supports or opposes key bills introduced in Sacramento strengthening or weakening the open government rights of inquiring citizens and the protections for speakers, journalists and whistleblowers.
A successful CalAware growth fund would make it possible to broaden and deepen that activism with increased public awareness and involvement.
CalAware not only provides support, through participation in amicus curiae briefs, for plaintiffs or defendants waging court battles for open government and free expression, but files such cases in its own name when necessary to enforce such rights and protections.
A successful CalAware growth fund would make it possible to increase the use of court actions—and cautionary letters and demands, which can be just as effective—in correcting those who do not respect the laws requiring open government or free speech and press.
PHONE AND EMAIL SUPPORT
CalAware responds to hundreds of calls and emails per year providing inquirers with answers to questions (summarized in our Knowledge Base) about open meeting and public records laws and practices, free speech rights and protections for effective journalism and whistleblowing.
A successful CalAware growth fund would help make this service better known and more available to more people who need it throughout the state.
