In recognition of Sunshine Week, learn how we can help you request and access the restricted and non-restricted Federal records held at the National Archives—often without a Freedom of Information Act request. A panel of staff experts will discuss and answer questions about their work in making records available from our executive, legislative, and Presidential holdings. Moderated by Gary M. Stern​, General Counsel, Chief FOIA Officer & Senior Agency Officer for Privacy, panelists include Joseph A. ScanlonFOIA & Privacy Act Officer in the Office of General Counsel; Kristen Wilhelm, Center for Legislative Archives; Martha Wagner Murphy, Chief in Special Access and FOIA Staff; John Laster, Director in Presidential Materials Division; and Don McIlwain​, FOIA/MDR Division in the National Declassification Center.

All public programs at the National Archives are free and streamed live online via the National Archives’ YouTube channel. Reservations are recommended; seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The doors to the building will open 45 minutes prior to the start of the program.
