Festival Details - "What You Don't Know About Local Government Can Hurt You"...

Start: Thursday, July 11, 2024 6:00PM
End: Thursday, July 11, 2024 8:00PM

Investigative reporter and editor Miranda Spivack in conversation with Lila LaHood, executive director of the San Francisco Public Press.

Miranda Spivack specializes in stories about government accountability and transparency - or lack thereof. She also writes about urban and rural development, and secret deals that often are involved.

For 20 years, Spivack was a reporter and editor at The Washington Post, where she broke stories about how local governments failed in their responsibility to be transparent. Her reporting led to changes in the way some jurisdictions worked with developers and government contractors. She continues to write about development trends for The New York Times.

Her series "State Secrets," for Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting, was honored with the Sunshine Award from the Society for Professional Journalists.

Join us to discuss Spivack's forthcoming book, "Backroom Deals in Our Backyards: How Government Secrecy Harms our Communities - and the Local Heroes Fighting Back," scheduled to be published in 2025 by New Press.

Tickets:

$10 to $35 sliding scale for the main event at 6 p.m.
$250 for pre-event fundraiser reception at 5 p.m.

No one will be turned away from the main event for lack of funds. If you need a sponsored ticket, simply write to community@sfpublicpress and request one.

Join us for "What You Don't Know About Local Government Can Hurt You" for an eye-opening conversation about government secrecy at the state and local level.
