POGO Powers Up for Sunshine Week

By Ari Goldberg, Project on Government Oversight, Mar. 10, 2017

It may still be cold in much of the US, but next week the Project On Government Oversight (POGO) will be marking Sunshine Week with a series of hot events aiming a spotlight on open government. For the 12th year in a row, journalists, advocates, and citizens will hold workshops, discussions, and nationwide events celebrating access to public information.

POGO is taking part in no fewer than four events next week, along with a 7-day social media surge promoting open government under the hashtag #SunshineWeek. If you’re not in the nation’s capital, you can participate in some of these discussions online. You can also check this calendar to find an event in your area.
