Transparency is vital to a healthy democracy and effective government.

What you should know

Meaningful citizen participation depends on the public’s ability to access information. For almost 50 years, Public Citizen has worked to increase government transparency, litigating more significant open government cases than any organization in the country.

Our Work

We litigate open government cases and assist organizations and individuals seeking information under the Freedom of Information Act. See our materials on government transparency.
