Speaker: Lauren Harper, Director of Public Policy and Open Government Affairs, the National Security Archive

Join the National Security Archive's Director of Public Policy, Lauren Harper, for a discussion of her organization's work using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to access historically significant Government documents. Harper will provide an overview of the Archive's history and biggest successes, from obtaining the Government's first official confirmation of Area 51 to the CIA's Family Jewels, as well as discuss the tool that unites all of the Archive's projects - the FOIA. Harper will also discuss the Digital National Security Archive, the Archive’s flagship publication series through ProQuest that contains more than 50 curated collections totaling well over 100,000 declassified records and that was named Choice Magazine's "Outstanding Academic Title" for 2018.
