From the Organizers:
*** Please note that this meeting is on the 2nd Monday this month due to some logistical issues ***
Sunshine Week is a national initiative started in 2005 by the American Society of News Editors. It was established with the goal of bringing awareness to the public about government transparency and freedom of information. The week coincides with the birthday of James Madison, who was a key proponent of the Bill of Rights and of governmental checks and balances. He was born on March 16th, and this year, Sunshine Week takes place March 15 - 21.
Robin Ryan will join us this month to share ways to find hard-to-reach data about our government. She'll lead a workshop that guides us through a series of websites and other resources that reveal details that can help us shine light onto our government and keep it accountable.
This event will be a hands-on workshop, so please bring a laptop or tablet along with your ideas and questions!
We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking afterwards. We hope to see you there!
