Our friends at the New England First Amendment Coalition are looking for a New Englander who has fought for information crucial to the public's understanding of their community or of what their government is doing.

NEFAC's annual Antonia Orfield Citizenship Award is given to a New Englander who has shown "tenacity or bravery in the face of difficulty while obtaining information that the public has a right to know."

Do you know someone who deserves the award? Nomination forms are here, and more details on the Orfield award are on NEFAC's website.

The nomination deadline is Feb. 1.
