In the United States, "Freedom of Information Day" is celebrated annually on March 16 (James Madison's birthday) or proximate business day, at the beginning of what is now known as "Sunshine Week." This program is the third annual celebration of Freedom of Information Day by the Washington College of Law's Collaboration on Government Secrecy, and this year it helps launch the "Sunshine Week" (March 14 - 20) of related activities by media and public interest groups. Panels of leading experts and distinguished keynote speakers will discuss major issues of current importance to the openness-in-government community, especially in light of the high expectations for concrete success in implementation of the Obama Administration's year-old transparency policies.
