OpenTheGovernment.org and AALL invite you to participate in the fourth annual Sunshine Week webcast, “Opening Doors: Finding the Keys to Open Government.” As in years past, we are looking for host sites and co-sponsors for local programs!
This year, the event will be webcast for free from the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. on Friday, March 20th from 1:00 to 2:30 EDT to sites around the country. The national program will explore what the new Administration is – or should be – doing to promote open government, what you can do to advance that goal, and what the news media are doing to make government information easily available in your communities.
You can get involved by volunteering to be a host site or local program sponsor. Sites are encouraged to show the national program and plan local programs in their communities. Audience members at sites viewing the live program will have an opportunity to call in and email questions to the live panels. This is a great opportunity to begin (or continue) a dialogue around open government in your community.
