Enforcing Transparency: A Conversation With Margaret Kwoka


WildEarth Guardians’ push for absolute government transparency under the Trump Administration has been in high gear over the last year, with the last month especially intense as we filed records requests with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management every single day.

Underpinning our transparency campaign is the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, which we consider one of the most important lines of defense for our democracy

That’s what led me recently to sit down and chat with Margaret Kwoka, a renowned Freedom of Information Act expert and University of Denver law professor


Transparency expert, Margaret Kowka.
