Since 2005, NLA (formerly the American Society of News Editors) has celebrated Sunshine Week to promote a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information.
News outlets have observed the week by producing special reports and series that featured information obtained from open-records access and highlighted the process journalists had to undergo to get it.
Any news outlet, nonprofit organization or public official holding an event to highlight Sunshine Week can submit it to NLA's events calendar by clicking here, completing a submission form online at newsleaders.org/sunshine-week-events or emailing information to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
To submit news stories, editorials, columns, cartoons or graphics for public use during Sunshine Week, email content links to: email@example.com. Please include a brief description and/or headlines suitable for posting on NLA's Sunshine Week web page.
