In the United States, "Freedom of Information Day" is celebrated annually on March 16 (James Madison's birth­day), during what is known as 'Sunshine Week.” This program is the fifth annual celebration of Freedom of Information Day by the Washington College of Law’s Collabora­tion on Government Secrecy, and this year it anchors the 'Sunshine Week' (March 11-17) 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, particularly in light of unmet expectations for greater success in implementation of the Obama Administration’s transparency policies.
