Freedom of Information Day

Freedom of Information Day

The Freedom of Information Day (FOID) This is an annual event held annually on March 16 of each year. It coincides with James Madison’s birthday. Madison is known as the Father of the Constitution. He also believed in openness in government. Plus, Madison was the 4th President of the United States of America during 1809-1817. 

This day comes from the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). This ensures informed citizens, vital to the function of a democratic society.The FOIA was passed into law in 1966. Pretty much saying that every person has the right to get information to federal agencies. However, there are nine exemptions to some.

U.S. Governments recognize and document this day. This day was created by Jim Bohannon, who syndicated radio talk show as a host on Westwood 1 Stations.

Another way to celebrate this day is to be open with others and honest. Almost like True Confession Day.

It’s not freedom from information … it’s freedom of information!
