The National Press Club, as part of its participation in Sunshine Week, is hosting a panel discussion the evening of Wednesday, March 19 at 6:30 p.m. on transparency in the District of Columbia.

The event is co-sponsored by the Club's Freedom of the Press Committee, the D.C. Open Government Coalition (www.dcogc.org), the D.C. Professional chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and the American University School of Communication. Continue>>>
