Virtual Roundtable on State of Transparency Under Biden

President Joe Biden has made strides in several areas related to accountability, including restoring ethics requirements, revoking harmful Trump administration orders, and reversing COVID-19 pandemic secrecy. As the clock winds down to his next 100 days in office, his administration has yet to make a substantive commitment to transparency and oversight. Will the delay set the tone for the remainder of his presidential term, even though he has promised to adhere to the “highest standard of transparency”?

Open The Government hosted a virtual roundtable on the ramifications of meaningful public transparency in the administration featuring:

  • ModeratorAdam Marshall, Senior Staff Attorney, Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press
  • Jack Gillum, Senior Reporter, ProPublica
  • Anna Diakun, Staff Attorney, Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University
  • Anne Weismann, Government Information Litigator, and former Chief FOIA Counsel, Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics in Washington
