As most of the United States digs out and warms up from the latest blast of wintery weather, we at OGIS are happy to share the news that we are busy planning for Sunshine Week 2018!
Sunshine Week is an annual nationwide celebration of access to public information. Since the American Society of News Editors (ASNE) launched the initiative more than a decade ago, it has been embraced by journalists, librarians, concerned citizens, civil society organizations, elected official, and government employees alike as an opportunity to discuss the importance of open government and its impact.
Sunshine Week 2018 at the National Archives will be held in the William G. McGowan Theater during the afternoon of Monday, March 12th. The event will be free and open to the public, both in person and via a live web stream. For those who miss out, we also post video after the event (you can find video of our 2017 event here).
