Broadcast, print and online reporters are invited to apply to the New England First Amendment Coalition to attend a three-day intensive training course on freedom of information laws.

This year’s featured speaker will be Marty Kaiser, editor and senior vice president of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
