Blog: eCase Case Management Blog

We are just one month away from National Sunshine Week coming up March 15 – 21. Sunshine Week is a nationwide celebration of the importance of transparency, open government, and freedom of information. The week-long event centers around National Freedom of Information Day held March 16. During Sunshine Week, FOIA watchdog groups, museums, college campuses, nonprofit organizations, and other open information fans.  Many participating organizations hold events and discussions to raise awareness of the issues surrounding Privacy Act and Freedom of Information laws.

Sunshine events are happening nationwide, but if you’re looking for some FOIA fun in Washington, D.C. take a look at what events the nation’s capital has to offer.

March 13 – The Newseum – The Newseum institute, OpentheGovernment.org, and the American Library Association will host a look back at 10 years of Sunshine Week and the importance of government transparency.

March 16 – U.S. Department of Justice – The U.S. DoJ will present awards to those with outstanding FOIA service.
