In the years since the Unite the Right white supremacy rally in Charlottesville and the removal of Confederate statues in cities across the country, supporters and opponents have utilized archives and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests in response to these issues and events. This panel discussion will open dialogue on how archives can help inform the process of political decision-making, the issues FOIA requestors and responders face, and how FOIA application is uniquely both bi-partisan and non-partisan. Questions from attendees are welcomed, as well as shared experiences related to these topics.
