American Library Association co-sponsors the Annual National Freedom of Information Day at the Knight Conference Center at the Newseum with the First Amendment Center, The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, OMB Watch, OpenTheGovernment.org and The National Security Archive at George Washington University.
The conference includes the announcement by the ALA of recipients of its annual James Madison Award. The ALA presents the Madison award to individuals or groups that have championed, protected and promoted public access to government information and the public’s right to know.
The conference, a full day of panel discussions and presentations, begins with registration at 8:30 a.m. ET.
