The website provides participants with myriad resources in the Toolkit section, including op-eds, editorial cartoons and Sunshine Week logos. There are also several sources for inspiration in FOI story ideas and Sunshine Week past work.
Stay tuned for the upcoming package of high-impact stories, a commentary piece, informational graphics and editorial cartoons that The Associated Press; The McClatchy Company; USA TODAY; and Gannett Co., Inc., are spearheading. Content will be available for free in early March and distributed by ASNE, AP, Reporters Committee and the Sunshine Week website.
ASNE launched Sunshine Week in 2005 as a national initiative to promote a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information. Participants have included print, broadcast and digital media outlets; government officials at all levels; schools and universities; nonprofit and civic organizations; libraries and archivists; and individuals interested in the public's right to know. In 2012, ASNE partnered with the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press and has renewed the partnership to oversee the national coordination of resources and provide support for participants.
Sunshine Week 2015 is made possible by an endowment from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and by generous donations from Bloomberg and the Gridiron Club and Foundation.
