Town Halls

Open Government Town Hall Tomorrow on May 28

Join OTG at an Open Government Community Town Hall from 12 to 2pm ET on Wednesday, May 28th. Attendees will have the opportunity to share their organization’s activities and reconnect with other partners in the community. Rick Blum of the Sunshine in Government Initiative will kick things off with an overview of the FOIA Files, an interactive resource of journalism made possible by the Freedom of Information Act.

RSVP for January 23 Open Government Townhall

On January 23 from noon - 2 pm (eastern) OpenTheGovernment.org will host a community "town hall" to help groups share their early plans for Sunshine Week 2014 (March 16 - 22). During the week several organizations across the country, including us, host events, launch reports and campaigns, and host other awareness-building activities. Unfortunately in years past, some of these activities have ended up competing against rather than complementing each other.

January Town Hall Planned for Early Sunshine Week Talks

In mid-January OpenTheGovernment.org will be hosting a community "town hall" to help groups share their early plans for Sunshine Week 2014 (March 16 - 22). As you likely know, Sunshine Week, which is centered around James Madison's birthday, is a national initiative to promote public understanding of open government issues.
