Solari Report Hero of the Week: Jan. 24, 2022: Steve Aftergood

Click here for link.

Steve Aftergood is our hero this week for the work he did during his long career with the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) from which he retired at the end of 2021. Steve directed the FAS Project on Government Secrecy from 1991 to 2021, which aimed to reduce the scope of national security secrecy. His efforts to bring more transparency and accountability within the government, especially around federal finances, have been invaluable. Steve is the person who put us on to FASAB-56.

The Federation of American Scientists is a nonprofit policy research and advocacy organization founded in 1945 to meet national security challenges with evidence-based, scientifically-driven, and nonpartisan policy, analysis, and research.
