event header

Event details: 

Just in time for election season, get up to speed on covering state-level campaign finance.

A trainer from the National Institute on Money in State Politics, a nonprofit nonpartisan group dedicated to government transparency, will be here to show us how to use the free web tool, http://beta.followthemoney.org.

The group collects campaign-finance info in a database that’s been “coded” using federal codes for everything from agriculture to transportation so you can find out what industry is giving money to politicians and judges in your coverage area. You also can crossreference to see where donors are spending their money and whether it’s tied to any legislation.

WhenOctober 4 2014, 2-3 p.m.

Where: Ironwood branch of the Phoenix Public Library, 4333 E. Chandler Blvd. (easily accessible from I-10)
