Sunshine Week has been mentioned in previous posts but it certainly deserves its own blog post too. This national initiative is set to take place March 16th through the 22nd. Its purpose is to open a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information. Anyone can take part, as long as you do something to engage discussion about open government. For example, you could write a letter to your local newspaper, host a panel discussion at your library, hold a debate on the FOIA in your political science class, etc.
So…what will you be planning to do that week or maybe for next years Sunshine Week? Care to share your ideas? (Because I’m looking for some!) I think this year I will create a daily post on my depository’s blog about open government and freedom of information resources, but next year I’d like to do something more interactive and on a larger scale with the community.
