Social justice work can take many forms, including journalistic and legal approaches. Filing a Freedom of Information Request is a basic and crucial skill for anyone looking to do this sort of work. It is not immediately obvious, even in the governments own rules, sometimes what is and isn't possible when filing a FIPPA request. Often times there are a slew of approaches and do's and don'ts that aren't written down or explained anywhere. Simply because, institutions don't actually want to give you these documents so they will exploit loopholes and weaknesses within the law. In this workshop you will learn about the basics and secret tips and tricks to getting the information you want and you need to make your case.

Facilitator Bio: Pippa Feinstein is a Toronto-based lawyer and mediator dedicated to promoting social and environmental justice and helping to build more compassionate communities. Through her practice, she works in an interdisciplinary way to collaborate with, and respond to the needs of, diverse grassroots and not-for-profit organizations
