Tennessee Coalition for Open Government seeks to preserve, protect and improve citizen access to public information and open government in Tennessee through an alliance of citizens, journalists and civic groups. Our focus is research and education because we believe knowledgeable citizens are the best way to protect the free flow of information.
Since its inception in 2003, TCOG has provided training and presentations to more than 2,000 people and offered on-the-spot free guidance to more than 1,000 citizens and journalists. It has conducted research into open government issues, providing education to citizens, journalists and lawmakers.
TCOG’s method is to work through a unique nonpartisan alliance of citizens, media and civic groups interested in preserving access to government information and public meetings. We are a member of the National Freedom of Information Coalition.
