KPA members are encouraged to participate in Sunshine Week, an annual nationwide initiative to promote open government. This year’s Sunshine Week runs March 11-17.
The goal of Sunshine Week is to spark a nationwide discussion about the critical importance of access to public information. The initiative is sponsored by the American Society of News Editors and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.
Newspapers can promote Sunshine Week by publishing stories, editorials, columns, cartoons and graphics highlighting government openness. ASNE and RCFP have made several items available in an online toolkit.
