Partying for Madison


We didn’t just have a typical DC happy hour this past Monday to kick off Sunshine Week, instead we had a birthday party in James Madison’s honor at the appropriately themed Cause: PhilanthroPub (where a portion of their profits goes to the charity of your choice). Transparency advocates from Sunlight, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW),, Project on Government Oversight (POGO), Reporters Committee for the Freedom of the Press and many more organizations were on hand to sing Happy Birthday to Madison, who is considered to be the Founding Father of Freedom of Information. The evening, complete with birthday cake, was a nice opportunity to unwind ahead of the week long festivities.
