More Chances to Wish FOIA A Happy Birthday!

OGIS Blog, June 8, 2016

If you missed seeing the original Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) signed by President Lyndon Johnson that was on display during our Sunshine Week Event, the National Archives is giving you another opportunity to wish the law a happy 50th birthday in person.

We are happy to announce that between June 15 and September 14, 2016, the FOIA will be on display in the National Archives’ permanent exhibition “Records of Rights” in the David M. Rubenstein Gallery. Members of the public can drop by during the Museum’s operating hours to view the exhibit for free.

Members of the press will have a special opportunity to photograph or videotape the document before it is placed on display. This informal press-only event will be on Monday June 13 in the National Archives’ Conservation Lab. See the press release for additional information.
