Plan for Sunshine Week, March 11-17

Sunshine WeekSunshine Week 2018 is March 11-17. The annual nationwide celebration of access to public information and what it means is made possible by an endowment from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and by
a donation from The Gridiron Club and Foundation.

The American Society of News Editors launched Sunshine Week in 2005 as a national initiative. Since 2012, ASNE has partnered with the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press to provide support for news organizations, libraries, universities, civic groups, nonprofits and others who want to promote open government and access to information.
