Northeastern University establishes center to promote open government

From the Boston Herald:

Northeastern University has established a research and advocacy center to focus attention on increasing efforts by government to limit access to public records and meetings.

The "First Amendment Center of New England" will offer citizens, journalists and public policy organizations information on open access to government. The center, announced Friday, will also have a hotline to advise citizens seeking public documents and will host seminars on public records and open meeting laws.

The university-based center is a joint project of the New England First Amendment Coalition and Northeastern’s School of Journalism.
