Who We Are
A coalition working for open government
The Missouri Sunshine Coalition is a broad-based group of volunteers committed to freedom of information (FOI) and the Missouri Sunshine Law, which provides citizens access to their government.
We are a nonprofit organization that works for FOI by educating the public about their rights under Missouri’s freedom of information law.
We are also advocates for open government at the state and local levels. That advocacy includes support of open records and open meetings. We believe firmly that the government’s business should be conducted in the light of day, for all citizens to see.
What We DoThe Missouri Sunshine Coaltion is dedicated to being an open records resource for the public. Our main vehicle is public education forums on FOI. We are available to help citizens with open government questions, though we are not attorneys.
