All too often, government transparency and national security are viewed as opposing forces. In reality, transparency and security are not always in contention.
On Friday, March 16 from 1:15pm to 3:30pm EDT, OpenTheGovernment.org, with support from several organizations including SLA, will present two panels featuring experts from both inside and outside government:
Whistleblowers & the Press: Roles and Risks in Divulging Information Needed for Accountable Government , and
Secret Government and Secret Laws: Do claims of national security trump open and accountable government?
The event will be held in the Knight Conference Center at the Newseum (555 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., Washington DC).
There is no charge to attend, but attendees are encouraged to reserve seating in advance. To register, please contact Ashlie Hampton at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 1-202-292-6288. Please provide your name, title, affiliation and contact information for agenda updates and other news.
