Sunshine Week

Sunshine Week

Sunshine Week is an annual celebration of the important work each of us are doing in our communities to encourage access to public information.  The American Society of News Editors and Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press team together to sponsor an annual “Toolkit” that is full of free resources that individual publications can use during Sunshine Week. 

Sunshine Week is about the public’s right to know what its government is doing, and why.
