SARAH Makes Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests Easy

SARAH FOIA Request Service
SARAH was built by Hicham Oudghiri at TechCrunch Disrupt's 2013 Hackathon. SARAH eases the process of requesting data that United States federal government agencies have collected about you as allowed by the Freedom of Information Act.

It is your right to make FOIA requests, but the government doesn't have to make the process easy. Each agency defines how the request must be received and what information has to be supplied. With SARAH you only complete one web form to request data from over 20 federal agencies (listed below). The service then mails letters with your information included to the proper address.

Will you be requesting your information? Let us know in the comments below.
