What We Do

Everything we do is centered around advocating and improving a citizen’s Right to Know (RTK) what government is doing on your behalf.

Specifically, we focus our efforts on the following:


  • Develop and propose legislation which broadens and strengthens a citizen’s Right to Know.
  • Legislative oversight of all bills which impact RTK
  • Advocate for or against proposed legislative changes to the RTK Law by writing legislators and testifying at legislative committee hearings
  • Write op-eds and participate in public forums regarding RTK
  • Serve as a media resource in matters related to RTK
  • Build cooperative associations with other organizations which share an active and ongoing interest in government transparency

Education & Training

  • Educate the public and public officials about the letter and spirit of the RTK Law
  • Maintain this blog with timely and relevant RTK news and information
  • Monitor and publish court cases and legal opinions which impact RTK
  • RTKNH volunteers are available to speak to civic organizations and citizen groups and conduct forum/workshop/training sessions on RTK

Assistive Services

  • Answer specific questions about the RTK Law
  • Assist citizens in exercising their rights to obtain information from their government
  • Help citizens identify and resolve RTK violations
