Freedom Of Information Act

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a federal law that gives you the right to access any Rosie the Riveter NHP, National Park Service (NPS), or Department of the Interior (DOI) records unless DOI reasonably foresees that the release of the information in those records would harm an interest protected by one or more of the nine exemptions (reasons an agency may withhold records from a requester) or release is prohibited by law.

If you are seeking general information about Rosie the Riveter NHP, you may wish to explore other pages of this website or feel free to contact the park. Otherwise, please submit a written FOIA request (there is no official request form, just send us a letter describing the records you desire) to:

Superintendent
Rosie the Riveter WWII/Home Front NHP
440 Civic Center Plaza, Suite 300
Richmond, CA 94804

You may also submit FOIA requests to the NPS or the DOI. If you have questions on what information is available without submitting a FOIA request or where it may be located, contact one of the NPS FOIA Officers and Contacts or DOI FOIA Contacts. Our responsibility is to provide you with copies of the documents you are entitled to receive under the law. We want to work with you to achieve that goal.
