'Welcome to Sunshine Week 2021!' by Barbie Keiser

Barbie Keiser writes the following in a blog post for Northern Virginia Community Colleges Loudoun Campus Library:

Sunshine Week is a celebration of the public’s right to see U.S. government records. Initiated in 2005, Sunshine Week features events sponsored by groups interested in the public’s right to know about its government, including government agencies, news organizations, universities, and libraries. These public events are designed to raise awareness about how important openness and transparency in government are for a democratic society. This year, Sunshine Week is celebrated the week of March 14-20, encompassing the March 16 birthday of James Madison, known as the ‘father of the Bill of Rights.’ ...

A Sunshine Week events calendar describes each event, date and time, and how to register or join. For example:

  • On March 15, Open the Government will host a panel discussion of the Trump Presidential Library and records, What Presidents Do to Keep Us from Knowing What Presidents Do.
  • Also on March 15 is the New England First Amendment Coalition online webinar, Keeping the Light On: Holding Government Accountable, examining the values of open and responsive government and how all citizens play a role.
  • The News Leaders Association webinar on March 18 features a discussion by journalists on how they navigated barriers to public records to tell important stories about COVID-19, official misconduct and beyond.
