About The James Madison Project

The James Madison Project is a Washington, D.C. organization that was established in 1998, to promote government accountability and the reduction of secrecy, as well as to educate the public on issues relating to intelligence and national security through means of research, advocacy and the dissemination of information.

We are always looking for ways to better develop the laws and policies surrounding the Freedom of Information and Privacy Acts, and foster greater openness in our society without unnecessarily infringing upon any individual's right to privacy.

If you have any suggestions for future activities, wish to alert our attention to information pertaining to our objectives or even offer your services in some form, please contact our Executive Director Mark S. Zaid

We appreciate your interest in The James Madison Project. Please visit our site often.
