James Madison Freedom of Information Award

The James Madison Freedom of Information Award is a freedom of information (as in freedom of information legislation and open government).

The award is intended to reflect the spirit of former U.S. statesman and president United States Bill of Rights, and in particular the First Amendment.

The award goes to media and community organizations, journalists, students, and citizens from the nine-county Bay Area who have defended public access to government meetings, public records, and court proceedings, or who have furthered other more general issues of freedom of expression and information.
