Americans for Prosperity Foundation (AFPF) is happy to announce that this year’s annual Sunshine Week symposium will feature a variety of voices from the center-right space discussing the importance of transparency, open government, and Freedom of Information (FOI) laws at the federal, state, and local levels. The symposium will also highlight the important work that Americans for Prosperity’s state chapters and AFPF have done to make government more accountable through the defense of open-records laws, as well as the creative use of the FOI-request process.

Participants include representatives from:

  • Southeastern Legal Foundation
  • Better Cities
  • National Taxpayers Union Foundation
  • The Mercatus Center at George Mason University
  • FOIA Advisor
  • AFP & AFPF
