Start planning for Sunshine Week, March 11-17

This year marks the 13th anniversary of Sunshine Week, a celebration of access to public information and how it impacts your community. Led by the American Society of News Editors, this year's event runs from March 11-17.

With public trust of the news media at an all-time low, Sunshine Week has never been more important. Major publications are working on a special reporting package free for anyone to publish in print or online.

There's a full week of scheduled events you can participate in, starting March 9 with a free online discussion called "Sunshine Week 2018: Fighting for Transparency and Freedom of Information." ASNE has also published an idea bank with examples of "Bright Ideas" to inspire your coverage.
