* In December 2019, the Government Records Transparency and Accountability group agreed to host an open letter to the San Diego State University concerning the Detainee Allies Letter Collection. [https://wiki.diglib.org/Transparency-Accountability/SDSULOpenLetter'''The letter and our group's preface statement'''] are available on our wiki.
 
 
 
* In November 2018, members of the Advocacy Committee  sent a [https://www.diglib.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2018/11/DLF-GRTA-NARA.pdf letter] to the National Archives with thoughts about how to improve the level of transparency of the processes surrounding records retention change requests. (See also the [https://www.diglib.org/dlf-group-looks-at-us-dept-of-interior-records-disposition-request/ blog post] about this letter, and the process that led up to it.)
