March 20 in Pittsburgh: Sunshine Week Conference

On Friday, March 20, I’ll be speaking about the Right-to-Know Law as part of the Access, Transparency and Your Right to Know daylong conference taking place at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Pittsburgh.

My discussion (and there will be plenty of opportunity for Q&A) will take place during the luncheon, but the entire event kicks off at 9:30 a.m.

Here’s how the organizers describe the event:

A coalition of nonprofit media organizations is holding a one-day conference to explore Pennsylvania’s open government and right-to-know laws. Timed to fall within Sunshine Week 2020, the gathering will feature sessions aimed at professional journalists, students, and individuals who have an interest in accessing government meetings and information.

Sessions will look at the Pennsylvania Right to Know Act, the Clean Slate law, the Sunshine Act and other access and transparency issues and the event will feature a keynote presentation from Erik Arneson, executive director of the Office of Open Records. Additional speakers to include representation from the ACLU, UVA Law School’s First Amendment Clinic, Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, PA Post, PublicSource, Spotlight PA, StateImpactPA, The Caucus and more.

Schedule and session program forthcoming.
