If you haven't seen it, we have a new package of content as part of a Sunshine Week extension that anyone can use and publish.If you haven't seen it already, we have a new package of content focused on government attempts to promote secrecy or hinder access to information. This is part of a Sunshine Week 2017 extension, produced by ASNE, AP and APME.
The package includes stories and their accompanying photos, as well as illustrations by Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Jack Ohman of The Sacramento Bee.
Anyone can use and publish the content online and in print for free.
The centerpiece is the Sunshine Hub that tracks state legislative attempts to alter the flow of public information. This includes bills that seek to make certain information off-limits to the public or harder to access.
The hub is accessible by anyone with an AP member account. ASNE members without an AP account can email Jiyoung Won at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for access. A webinar to explain how the hub works was held Aug. 31 and was recorded. You can access the recording here.
