Know Your Rights

First Amendment CoalitionHosted by League of Women Voters California
and the First Amendment Coalition


First Amendment Coalition’s open-government experts will provide an in-depth presentation on your right to access public meetings in CA. The presentation will be 45 minutes, reserving 15 minutes at the end for questions.

IT will focus on the Ralph M. Brown Act’s open-meeting requirements for local legislative bodies, including recent law changes that affect teleconferencing and decorum rules.

The session will cover:

  • Your right to give public comment and what restrictions government bodies can place on the public
  • What government business can be done behind closed doors
  • Common complaints from members of the public about accessing and participating in meetings
  • Where First Amendment speech protections intersect with the government’s ability to manage proceedings

Please share this invitation! Everyone is welcome.
