at the Newseum, 555 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C.

The 16th annual National Freedom of Information Day conference, hosted by the Newseum Institute’s First Amendment Center in partnership with OpenTheGovernment.org, brings together groups from all areas concerned with freedom of information and open records, including FOI advocates, government officials, lawyers, librarians, journalists and educators.

During the conference, the American Library Association will announce the recipient of its annual James Madison Award, which is presented to individuals or groups that have championed, protected and promoted public access to government information and the public's right to know.

The annual conference, which also commemorates the March 16 birth date of President James Madison, author of the First Amendment, is conducted in partnership with the American Library Association, OpenTheGovernment.org and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. The event also is part of the annual Sunshine Week initiative sponsored by the American Society of News Editors and the Reporters Committee.
