This week, Sunlight joined Open the Government, a coalition of over 50 groups who are committed to citizen access to governmental information. Open the Government coalition partners include groups like OMB Watch and associations of reporters.
We are also starting to plan our own contribution to Sunshine Week, a week in Mid-March dedicated to making Government transparent, and we’d welcome any ideas. We are currently thinking about a panel on congressional transparency and some cool online display of secrecy and openness, but we are, as always, curious to hear your input. What panel topics would interest you, and what is your dream online demonstration related to access to congressional information?
