Second Annual Freedom of Information Day Celebration

Monday, March 16, 2009
08:30 AM - 05:30 PM

In the United States, "Freedom of Information Day" is celebrated annually on March 16th (James Madison's birthday), at the beginning of what is now widely known as "Sunshine Week." This program will be the second annual celebration of Freedom of Information Day to be conducted by WCL's Collaboration on Government Secrecy ("CGS"), and this year it serves to launch the entire "Sunshine Week" (March 16-20) of related activities by media and public interest groups. Panels of leading experts and government officials will discuss major issues of current importance to the openness‐in‐government community, including an early assessment of the new transparency policies of the Obama Administration.
