THE STORY OF THE KEENE STATE FIVE:A FIGHT FOR PUBLIC ACCESS
The City of Keene denied the Right-to-Know requests of five Keene State College journalism students made as part of a an annual classroom assignment. The students decided to fight back.
Their teacher, Dr.Marianne Salcetti, who represented them, and David K. Taylor, Vice President of Right to Know NH, who helped them, tell the story. The case took the team from the classroom, through the Cheshire County Superior Court, and to the New Hampshire Supreme Court.
Learn how they did it, and how you can use the Right to Know law in your own community. Moderated by Attorney Gregory V. Sullivan, the pro bono legal representative in the 2020 NH Supreme Court case.
Presented by The Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications and Right to Know NH.
Dr. Marianne Salcetti was honored with the 2020 Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications First Amendment Award for her leadership in this case.
