MARCH 16th: FREEDOM OF INFORMATION DAY (CREATED BY JIM BOHANNON); SUNSHINE WEEK; AND JOURNALISM ETHICS
(FROM https://nationaldaycalendar.com) “March 16th recognizes National Freedom of Information Day. This day is an annual event held during Sunshine Week (and was created by Jim Bohannon). National Freedom of Information Day celebrates the birthday of President James Madison. Madison is known as the “Father of the Constitution” and as the foremost advocate for openness in government. He is also hailed as being instrumental in the drafting of the United States Constitution and as the key champion and author of the United States Bill of Rights. Individual rights and freedom of information were of high importance to Madison.”
