TRAC Co-director Receives FOIA Award
TRAC co-director Dr. Susan B. Long was named as the recipient of the 2012 Robert Vaughn FOIA Legend Award as part of the Freedom of Information Day Celebration at the American University Washington College of Law on March 16. Freedom of Information Day is celebrated in the U.S. on or near the birthday of James Madison, considered by many to be the “Founding Father of Freedom of Information.”Dr. Long received the award in recognition of her career as a uniquely successful FOIA requester and FOIA litigant over the course of more than four decades. Her contributions to the Freedom of Information community were previously recognized with her induction into the FOIA Hall of Fame in 2006 along with TRAC co-director David Burnham.
Video of the event, including Dr. Long’s keynote address, is available on C-SPAN.org.
