AALL believes that citizens possess the right to access
the documents and proceedings of their government in order to allow for
effective public oversight. The public's right to know promotes equal
and equitable access to government, and reduces secrecy and undue
influence from special interests. AALL believes that federal, state, and
local governments should be committed to openness, transparency,
public participation, and collaboration.
