Madison Award recipients recount their experiences, highlight importance of freedom of information

Yesterday the American Library Association was pleased to present the James Madison Award to Meredith Fuchs, General Counsel to the National Security Archive, and the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) accepted by Anne Weismann. Both women gave inspiring speeches on the importance of freedom of information and the work that they were able to do on the missing White House e-mail lawsuit. Roberta Stevens presented the awards during the 12th annual National Freedom of Information Day Conference to be held at the Knight Conference Center at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.
