From Secrecy News from the FAS Project on Government Secrecy:

This week is Sunshine Week, an annual effort sponsored by journalism advocacy and civil society organizations to promote values of open government, freedom of information, and public participation. A rich variety of events are scheduled around the country, most of which are free and many of which will be webcast.

I will be participating in several programs, including these: Open Government in the Second Term, sponsored by the Center for Effective Government and the Electronic Privacy Information Center on March 12.

The Future of Classification Reform, sponsored by the Brennan Center for Justice on March 14

Freedom of Information Day at the Newseum on March 15
