The 2022 D.C. Open Government Summit March 16 at 6:30 p.m. will focus on DC Metropolitan Police Department’s (MPD) transparency and accountability. This year’s Sunshine Week program will be again virtual via Zoom.
We have invited recently appointed Chief Robert J. Contee III (confirmed) to address concerns District residents, activists and journalists have raised about access to MPD information, including records, body-worn camera videos, and officer discipline proceedings. We will also hear from nonprofit and private-sector experts and activists about their experiences seeking information from the MPD.
Finally, we want to hear from you. Share your questions for MPD and/or panelists, and if you are pursuing other local open government issues, let us know via the event registration form!
The 2022 Open Government Summit is co-sponsored by the DC Open Government Coalition, the DC Office of Open Government, the NAACP Washington, DC Branch, the Society of Professional Journalists DC Pro Chapter, and EmpowerEd.
