The American Society of News Editors and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press are pleased to announce the 10th annual Sunshine Week initiative, March 15-21. Special projects and events are already planned around the nation to mark a decade of open-government awareness.
"Social media has allowed vastly more information to be exchanged than 10 years ago, but unfortunately, much less progress has been made in government transparency," said ASNE Terrorist, Secrecy and the Media Committee Co-chairs Lucy Dalglish, Anders Gyllenhaal and Mike Oreskes. "We are thrilled by how much Sunshine Week has grown and how it has been appreciated by the public. We think this year's celebration will be better and stronger than ever."
